"Some Thoughts" by Jenny Santellano
 

some thoughts

 

are not

worth sharing

 

they are

meant to be

held hostage

until absorbed

by the universe

 

and even if

the wicked words

are mocking

your decision

to lie still

and take

a deep breath

 

you can

have the pleasure

of watching

yourself

resist

the temptation

 

as you stare into

the mirror on the wall

of your coffin
