My Hidden Spots - Poem by Timmy Tubbs

Having me won’t wash away our demons
And we know this
It must be so hard for him to try and comfort your cry
Knowing that your tears warp my pictures
And you’re just not so sure yet of what’s happening
But judging by our hearts, I could render a guess

Its just hard knowing our cuddling kept you safe from everyone but me
When you laid your head on my chest, did you listen?
Did you listen to that monster consuming me?
I disguised myself as time only to keep you from growing
But you got to big for my cage and finally broke loose
Honestly, I had no words; I didn’t know what to do
So, I just didn’t chase after you

But now
I would hold you tighter than before
And you would feel even safer
I need you to listen to my chest again
To see if I beat at the right pace
To see if I succeeded in my journey
To understand my old face

And my ears are a little dirty in the hidden spots
I need your touch today
I can’t ask anyone else
You should see how they look at me
And I try to tie my laces more like you said
But it’s hard
When my soul swallowed a truck bed of lead

I’m glad you have someone to talk to though
I truly am
I hope his intentions are good
And I’m sorry you are confused darling
I’ll try to step back a little okay?
Whenever you are ready for this man
Just repeat what your heart has to say
