Falling Apart


I’ve been hurt

I’ve been beat

Been drug down by my feet--

I’ve been crying

I’ve felt raged

Tried to put down all the right words on the page--

I’ve felt the darkness of the bottom

I’ve seen the light from above

Been unwanted. Been loved.

I’ve been an angel

I’ve been a monster

Learned that nothing bleeds like a human.

While I feel pain

While I stand back up

I feel a heart that’s still beating.
