Learned.

I am broken –
Bruised and battered and swollen.
My eyes are still burning.
I know I am immobile –
and some things are not easy to change.
Security is in tatters,
Wholeness in ashes.
And I just want to be with
solidity and happiness.
Beaten by self loathing
There is no switch to flip.
But my heart is a lion,
Clawing and slashing.
And it’s turned on itself –
So watch that love drain.
