Can I Let You In?

Mon, 03/24/2014 - 19:43 -- 12LCAT

It's turning my thoughts into words that gets me

It's allowing my emotions to break through the membrane of my skin

My skin that I have toughened to thick leather

and my words that I so carefully choose to be unbiased

They try to escape, but I lace them tighter into the corset of my stomach

and cork my brimming bottle

the pressure builds, but I wait

I prefer to drink alone
