everybody has a chapter they don’t read out loud

everybody has a chapter they don’t read out loud
something they don’t want to talk about

they may be uncomfortable letting it out
they think they may break down, all doubt

don’t ask, just stay in regular
the person may now feel better

the chapter was written for a reason
reading it loud or not, is the writer’s decision

with the writer, let the privacy be
don’t be, “tell me all when you’re free!”

give the person a personal space
they’ll happily end the chapter, by god’s grace
