My Side

Your words land
Like kisses
On my forehead
Easing my worries
That are half made up
In my head
Over analyzing
Every move
People make
What does it mean
When you start to see
Multiple meaning words
Behind every edge
Of the dining room table
And you stop hearing the laughter
Excuse me I stand
Because I can’t stand the
Loud thumping of my own heart
Glaring of candlelights
And clinky glasses
Celebrating success
Full of yourself and
Empty plates of promises
I step into my bedroom
To hide my lack of understanding
In my corner
Where I cease to pretend
What’s bothering me
Only I find you
Already standing there
Are you on my side?
Yes.
And I stopped worrying
For the night.
