Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


14 April 2014



please don’t,

don’t write the words

I am frightened of.

don’t tell my secrets,

don’t reveal my demons,

don’t put me on display,

don’t parade my weaknesses,

don’t sell my vulnerabilities,

don’t let anyone see my pain,

don’t make me bleed,

don’t bribe me to perform,

don’t coax me to pretend,

don’t milk my tears,

don’t provoke me to anger,

don’t label me,

don’t sacrifice my differences,

don’t abandon me to myself,

don’t, please

just don’t.
