Interrogation Room

I sit across the table
your long lashes mirror mine
in a police interrogation room
long dainty fingers nervously fidget
about the secrets I ask
they could be mine
I can't tell
which side of the table I'm on
the glass is more than one way
breath constricted
by choking hands
"I just want her to get help"
words soaked up
by foam covered bricks
"freak outs" pulling in two directions
as your head breaks through a wall
Bravery sits in that chair though
and will get up
and move forward with life
just as I did
