In broken moments
it’s better down here
curled up in the afterlife
at the end of the world.
What she knows hurts her,
every little detail bites into her skin
throbs through her veins
secrets are poison she sells.
It’s better to lose
than to fail.
Better to be broken completely than whole and hurting.
None of it makes sense
but she never claimed it did.
Only offered up the souls
of who have given up themselves.
You can only be brave for so long sometimes.
There is no shame in giving up.
There is no shame to be had
in enjoying the broken moments
if that’s all you have.
There’s not shame at all.

    So intense – I get it, though. Wow. Just… wow.

    Thanks for the beautiful, touching poem! I feel it’s a reminder, too.
