Band Aid

I’ve been using my words as a Band Aid

to cover the feelings I feel,

because if I write them down,

maybe they won’t consume me so much.

And then maybe the pain and the love won’t shock my whole body

all at the same time.

It’s a really big Band Aid

that’s holding me together.

It keeps my insides from bleeding out.
