“Talk To Me”–Lauren Hupp

Poetry

Tell me.

Tell me everything,
Everything you want.

All your dreams,
Your nightmares,
and the daydreams in between.

Talk to me
About the fight you got in
With your best friend
At the age of five,
Or when you fell out of a tree
Playing hide and seek.

Open up
About your fears,
The things that makes your skin crawl.

Tell me about
Your need for freedom,
To escape the world you hate.

Just be honest.
I want to hear everything.

You’re my love,
My soulmate,
My everything.
Don’t you want to talk to me?
