reservation for 1

much of what I put down on paper
never makes it to the screen
he could tell you
there's a lot only he's ever seen
I'd venture to say some of my best writing
was written just for him
and that's where it will stay
within his safekeeping
these words & feelings
shared vulnerability
it's not about attention
it's about expression
human connection
letting go of the pain
no man knows the book of me
it's still being written
but he alone
bears all my ink
upon his thirsty parchment
