A Note of Gratitude
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.
