Confession of Untold Truths

She took a deep breath

pausing to collect herself

eyes averted

before relinquishing

it all at once,

and just as quickly

as she released her breath

she disclosed everything

that has ever happened

to her

in an unsteady

stream of consciousness

filled with “uhms” and “uhs”

but quickly enough to release it all

before any creeping tears

could fall

-POE(MS)
