A Note of Gratitude

by lumos87

NB: TRIGGER WARNING

Thank you for

Swollen strawberry-red lips

Swirls of black and purple bruises

Smashed bones and crimson trails on the floor

Wrists turned white, fingers a shade of navy blue

 

Since we parted

I pick up broken pieces.

I pour liquid gold to fill the cracks.

I break the silence to share the love and power that

Spill from a still-beating heart.

To glow bright in the dark of you.

 

I am now everything that you hated most.

Survivor,

Warrior,

Empress,

Complete.
