leave me, alone

i’m black or white
when it comes to how
i imagine your silence
, manifesting voices inside
your mind.

are you tired of me? or tired
from the energy it
takes to hide your
love from me
and your husband and
yourself.

either way, that voice
says “leave me
alone”.

i hear it, but i don’t
know how
to listen, my love. i don’t
know how to miss
missing you, my love.

i don’t know how to
un-muse you.
