    do you

    ever

    find

    yourself

    nostalgic

    for

    the life

    you never

    got to

    have?

    this is for the ones with

    starfall hearts and blown glass eyes

    this is for the ones with

    broken hands and unbroken ties

    this is for the ones with

    wild hair and ghosts in their lungs

    this is for the ones with

    unsung mothers and wars on their tongues

    this is for the ones with

    bruised peach skin and fear-flayed nails

    this is for the ones with

    hummingbird hearts and thighs that tell tales

    of nights they found love and nights to forget

    of days passed in silence, words not to regret

    - i am yours.

    you are sad now.

    you are not sad forever.

    there are no paved roads

    to healing.

    you must build one

    brick by brick.

    there will be backtracks

    before breakthroughs but—

    you must collapse

    into yourself

    before rebuilding.

    you must unearth

    every wound

    before learning

    the power of salt.

    you will build

    that yellow brick road—

    in your own time and

    on your own terms.

    - the grit of healing.

    this is me

    pressing

    my finger

    to the sand,

    delicately

    drawing

    your name

    there,

    & then

    stepping back

    so i can

    watch

    you

    as you’re

    finally

    carried away.

    - goodbye.

    becoming

    your

    own

    savior

    sometimes

    means

    knowing

    when

    you

    need to

    ask for

    help.

    - therapy session no. 1.

    cages

    are

    still cages

    even

    when they’re

    designed

    to

    look

    just like

    castles.

    can’t

    a prince

    a princess

    a  n  y  o  n  e

    just

    come along

    & gaze

    upon me

    with such

    adoration

    it’s

    as if i’m

    the gem

    of the deep,

    not the rubble

    of pompeii?

    - when will it be my turn?

    for

    the life

    - (because i do.)

    mostly, i just want to know what it’s like to feel something between elation & despair, besides nothing at all.

    something in the back of my mind will always be trying to remind me of those moments when i learned that sex & violence are not the same thing.
