Week 2/ 2018: Cracked

You may give me pain
but you can never hurt me,
that privilege is reserved
for those who have burrowed
into this masochistic heart.

AN: I have truly missed challenging myself and posting. Thus, I am very excited to share this poem – these words have been in my head all week, teasing and playing around but not taking form until today. I love the title so much – courtesy of my sister.  As she said – it’s about being 50/50. Caring and not; making room and closing up; allowing those dear to hold power while ignoring the words of toxic people. It is about being cracked… being human.
