honest exhaustion

being honest with myself
was so exhausting
i have a thumping headache
and my cheeks are streaked with crusted tear tracks
now my chest is free
from the cruel knot that i tied around it
to keep the feelings down
at least now
if anything
i can take a steady breath again
without a quiver in my bottom lip

-honest exhaustion
