transparency as an act of aggressionMature

Just to be clear - 
when I said my heart was splintered,
I didn’t mean from you. I didn’t mean
that your touch was corrosive or that
it was your fingerprints burned into
the meat of me.

Just to be clear - 
when the foundation is laid, we
aren’t going anywhere. We’ll build
our walls up until they only let in starlight
and we’ll dig our feet into the dirt and
let the moonlight nourish us.

Just to be clear -
I never intended to walk away from this.
Some people are just time bombs and 
I’ve always been too reckless with my heart
to know when to bail out. We can’t ignore what we are
any more than we can contain the devastation.

The End
