poetry by j matthew waters

inside these walls

you keep coming back to me
in your subtle ways
but at times I feel so tired
        at that very instance
I fail to realize
what it was you said
or didn’t say

the smell of burnt electricity
eventually brings me
back into the fold
        rhetorical questions
without any answers
slowly smoldering
inside these walls

december two thousand twenty
