luggage

behind every shining
paper 
and mention

lives the truth of
the esteemed

the person 
lives 
in the world of
stories
ideas
regrets
and wishes

day after day
and into the night

adventures
failures
dreams and terrors

do you think these meet her ears
and fall to the floor

burrow beneath the skin
she is not infallible.

"Go live -
I'll keep these
stories safe."

The esteem exists
in the trust between people
in vulnerability.

Therapists listen 
they try their best
to live fully 
knowing truths of life
so many attempt
to keep 
locked away 
unpacked in
luggage
