I’m Going To Climb Up And Down You As A Way Of Playing With Myself, A Poem by Chris Russell

When I say I’m like a child,

that doesn’t mean that

I’m going to climb up

and down you

as a way of playing

with my thoughts

and listening to myself.

That doesn’t mean

I want to hurt you,

Even though I know

I sometimes do,

and I’m sorry for that.

It means I’m still trying to

accept I can be good

without having to be.
