Meeting you wasn’t easy.
In a matter of seconds my world flipped.
I decided to hide-it was easier than telling you the truth, my truth.
I watched the world chip away at your heart;
Giant pieces removed until there was no heart at all;
The weight of grief had turned it to a heavy ball.
I held the ball in my hands,
My love became too hot-
Metal burned again but I could not
I burned holes through myself as I wore it in my heart;
With every embrace another hole was bored showing more and more of my insides-
You can see through me now.
I don’t have anything to hide,
But I don’t want you to know that the holes you made in me have left me bleeding
