tell me how this works for you

not sure
what you meant
when
you said
you learned
how to channel
your feelings
how that happened to happen
how that would not happen
to all emotional fruit
when
you seem challenged
to express any feeling
or let
your face reveal
truth from
your heart
much less
your mouth
it stays trapped
behind
your eyes
caged in
your tongue
behind your teeth
or was that the point
you were making
to hide and bury
and pray that
when
you finally
dug it up it
wasn’t dust
or worse
forgot it was
there?
