Unburdened

My text said I wouldn’t speak about
My feelings, my heartache.
I lied.
How do I recover after the break?

Others rebound and move on.
I’ve seen it. An example for some,
But I am unique.
I am me, not just anyone.

So let’s get together
And lend me your ear and your empathy.
Perhaps it’s asking too much,
But maybe at the end I’ll feel a bit free.
