, ,

So stubborn and
devoid of discipline,
my heart would have
continued wasting its time
on men of less than
noble intentions
if it weren’t for you, and
they in their selfish hunger
would have kept taking
advantage of my open door
and kept taking my
threshold for hurt to places
that aren’t worth surviving,
kept running their fingers
through my hair and
the strands of my words
and kept taking
what they could get,
again and again
and I would have kept
suffering all of that
in silence
and kept giving.

But you came
and I didn’t have to.
Thank you.
