Tearing, ripping, down the seam

pulling, reaching, asking – from both directions

seeking to keep me

Trying to stay strong and firm in the midst of a storm

confidences, questions, probing

advice solicited, secrets guiltily kept,

long hidden truths shared

feelings hurt

humanities shown,

conversations replayed,

egg shells breaking beneath my feet

loyalties scarred





stained trust

keeping it together, I think, just enough….


Tell me what you think!
