i didn’t know

that the weight of your displeasure

would hurt so much.

You didn’t know

that the weight of your anger

would break me.

A long, jagged crack

across my heart.

i spent the night

holding it closed

scooping the soft parts up, and stuffing them back in

before they could all leak out

and leave me

  1. Oh my, nilla. this is amazing – so brutal, so honest, so heartfelt. i can feel the anguish.

    i gotta ask – everything ok?

  2. WTF, Nilla….

    Is it bloody DOM is angry with me weekend??? i just can’t seem to please… and my punishment is Him ignoring me. How does one deal with that? Drives me insane.

    one bite at a time.

  4. First of all, that was amazing!!! You are GIFTED. Really you are.
