gray, empty but i let the words grow and my heart, i let show but with separation came the anxiety, the pain, the journey within confinement. i wasn’t ever my own and my many faces had me so alone, i thought i might drown. it started before i even knew what puberty meant: at twelve, i wrote my first lines. now, at twenty, i want you to read my warning signs.
