#2 Arriving at Conclusions

Why can’t we accept lies and let go of the truths?

I wanted to un-hurt myself by giving

you the power to hurt me, finally.

By saying, “I don’t want you,”

then letting go of me harshly.

But you deny me

the freedom from this feeling,

from the guilt that I have just might

broken the vulnerability

we were hiding in.

You put your arms around me.

“It’s okay,” you said.

It will never be, I bet.
