truth

never in my life have i looked
with such shame
in the mirror
always the hurts pierce
and wound and
grind my soul into pieces and
i bleed
remembering

being in that house was like
a solitary death
my fears quickening and loud
alone with you it was
darkness near and
i bleed
remembering

fyi: sending a present
just because i’m turning another year older
doesn’t make you sorry
your words are nothingness
shards of lies and
i bleed
remembering
