Cover Your Ears

I have never packed lighter
A backpack of essentials
I left the rest behind
but I could not leave my mind
or the thoughts it contains

Words are swishing in my mouth
I want to let them out
Tears will fall as I shout
Cover your ears
I do not want you to hear

There is no need to explain
Do not ask questions
My answers are unsure
and my emotions obscure
with unexpected circumstance
