She Said

She said
I believe that for every
bus missed
somewhere out there
a train gets caught
it isn't what you are not
what you think you haven't got
She said
I might breathe out
this breath
that I'm breathin' in
its only in an effort
to resurrect
this life I'm livin'
She said
nothing outside
my front or back door
shocks or appalls
my mind any more
at least that’s what I tell myself
as I drag my heart across this floor
She said
if you only knew
the truth
the life inside
these shoes
oh Lord
you'd wanna walk
barefoot too
