I will not speak to you through my words.
though you will find my answer there.
I will give you my voice
replete with the cracks and inflection of emotion
as I battle myself
and allow a dismantling of this mighty fortress I’ve erected.
Each stone removed
giving way to vigorous expression of thought
urged on by the slight presence of fingers
at the small of my back.
