Jan 2018
I pulled the skeletons out of my closet
Summarized my darkest fears of abandonment
And held them between your fingers as I struggled
To explain my deepest rooted pain through words
Like surrendering everything that has left me empty
And giving it to you to use as a weapon against me
Shattering every wall I have built to keep away anyone
Who would care enough to understand why I ever
Built a wall in the first place.
Part of my "Infinite Parts" series, dedicated to you.
