you are a broken house with smashed windows
and ivy growing between your fingers
you are fragile and with every
creaking footstep on the stairs you pray so 
hard that you have let the right one in

there will be people,
people with minds so blissfully ignorant that
they walk right through you and do not 
see the splintered furniture residing within your
body, you are invisible to them,
and sometimes
you wonder if you are even there

but then there are other people - 
people worth staying standing for,
people who will walk in and gently run their 
fingers along the parts of yourself that
you forgot were even there,
people who will explore your anatomy like
it is an undiscovered world. 
let them find the stale cup of water you left
beneath your bed 5 months ago,
let them find the brittle treasures you hide
in your fireplace, and how you masochistically
adore the way that you could just
catch on fire at any
second

but do not let them break you,
not ever again.


oh my god i didn't write about you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i wrote about something else and i'm not sure what it is but that's okay because it's different and it's not you and that's very very good for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(i do need to stop beginning my poems with "you are" though it's becoming something of a bad habit)
