You thought I would bend

The coldness you would put me through would make me appreciate the warmth you straightened me with

You thought i would bend

You thought i would yearn for your approval as i did as a child

You did not take into consideration

That the ice in my spine

did not defrost

 

As the thin blanket                       lay over me

                               you gave me

i decided to pull at the seams

apartUNTIL!IT!ALL!FINALLY!CAME!APART!
AND I WONT STAY QUIET THIS TIME

I AM RIPPED APART BECAUSE OF YOU

I AM BROKEN BECAUSE OF YOU

YOUR YARN OF LIES CLOSED MY EDGES SHUT ME

                                                                          but I am open now

you bent me until I couldn't

                                                                          I am open now

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
