Linda Edwards Scribbles











You keep trying to reassure me

that everything will be okay

that it’s not as bad as it seems

like the voices aren’t as many as they sound

like all my fears are too extreme

but this was the extreme

this world happening

was all the things you said would never happen

that people aren’t really like this

that not enough were honestly

like this

not enough to hurt us

just like they’re working on

you know they’re working on

you know

so don’t tell me everything’s okay

don’t tell me not to worry

don’t tell me no one will get hurt

don’t tell me not to look

don’t hurt me like this

don’t
