There's a place in my bones where
I've buried you, a shallow grave
between yesterday and today
that will never overgrow with flowers.
There's silence trapped behind my teeth
because wounding you with sharp words
would mean wounding me.
And I'm so weary from breaking.
I feel every fissure,
every crack you pried open,
like a rusty door that won't fully shut.
No matter how carefully you tread,
the staircase moans a warning.
Remember. Remember. Remember.
Do you know how badly
I've wished that only goodness
was born from these ruins?
Author's Notes: Dear you (reader) ,
Forgive me for this dark poem. I know it isn't cheerful, but this is how my heart feels today. Like a door I've kept locked and shut tight has cracked itself open again, and the grief I feel...is immeasurable. I keep thinking I've moved beyond it, or in the very least, I've found a way to acknowledge it and live with it. But there are days when I relive what my family did, and it's hard to separate myself from it. It's like I'm reliving the pain of child me. Again and again and again.
I think it's good for me to write about it, and though it's a bit vague, this is how I feel. Not all the time. I promise things do get better from time to time, but for today, this is how I feel.
And I hope someone, somewhere, understands.
Thinking of you xx
