Back In That Room – Written September 2022 (Aged 47)

Back In That Room

i remember us in that room
when you said to me,
you are not like the other men
you are different,
but you do not know,
how much at the time
i did not want you to go
i remember the things you said
and the secrets you told
as both of us sat in that room
in our combined hold

i remember us in that room
the words that you said to me
and how those words effected me
but i was not sure,
if being different was good or bad
all i knew was that you were there
and feeling so sad
doesn’t childhood trauma,
always drive you mad?
can i just say, you were different too
just wish, you did not try too hard
to make the perfect view
