Image for the poem bren


I am vulnerable in your glance
and yes, I love you
but I am a sum of my parts
I was beautiful once
I no longer shine
not on the outside where we are measured

if you were to meet me face to face
you might see through to me
a lot of men seem to
see something in me I don't

I have trouble opening up
you would see me
diverse personalities beautiful to behold
I am different than some

I touch you down deep
perhaps you feel protective over my pain
you drew me in long ago
I didn't know you felt the same
I am happy for your friendship
I don't want to lose that

so I will write to you and leave you alone
I'm better when I think no one is listening anyway
I hope I don't hurt you with my tongue
inside the darkness I cringe
but it is a part of me

you are beautiful to me
a soul so strong and brave
let's begin again
