I Hope You Can't Hear Me

I Hope You Can't Hear Me

A Poem by bri

I just want to sing. 

As loudly or as softly as I wish,

no matter who may be listening

or who might hear.

I want to whisper words of 

songs that make me close my eyes

just to rejoice in the rhythm

a little bit more than usual.

I want to perform the parts

that make me get up and dance 

or put on my own concert in the shower.

Dancing with bubbles on top of my head

and running down my body,

using a bottle of shampoo as my very own microphone. 

I want to feel my lungs fill 

as I take a deep breath,

before I finish the next long note. 

I want to know that no one cares.

That no one hears.

Like the only thing that matters

is the way these words feel

as they make their way out of my throat.
