Everywhere I Am

I wish I could say something
But I can’t
Because everywhere I am
There you are too
My honesty
My tears
My frustrations
All stay locked up inside
Because everywhere I am
There you are too

What have I done?
Why did I go along?
Why did I decide
To let you in
To all my spaces
To all my sacred places
Everywhere I am
There you are too

If only I had somewhere
To let this all out
Around people who understand
Without you being around
If only I could speak honestly
About the indifference
About the imbalance
About the ways I gave and gave
And you did not
But everywhere I am
There you are too

I’m suffocated
I’m gagged
I’m dying inside
I have to let this out
But where can I go that you are not?
And maybe that’s the problem I keep holding on
And I need to let go
To understand that just because you are there
Does not mean I have to hold on
I can let it go
I can let it fly
I don’t have keep it all locked away inside
Maybe no one needs to understand
Maybe I don’t have to commiserate
Maybe I can free myself
And accept
That everywhere I am
There you are too
