he was already broken

in the beginning.

his heart and mind,

never awoken.

insecure and fragile.

his world views and mindset

of a scared child.

but we can’t stop loving someone

even when it harms us.

still he lashed out in anger and

my skin bares the crimson cuts.

you could love someone and never

get them to see…

they are worthy of a love without

methods of insanity.

sometimes the bravest step you can take is to


let them do what they do, say what they say,

believe what they want to believe.

because you are you….

and you are more than what you’ve survived and been through.

there’s a point where you realize…

the only way to escape is to let them be…

to make it out alive.

deep down you know you could live with them, on your broken, bloody knees…


find a way to….

break from their chains and

fly away
