still healing

i built a cast around my broken heart and begged it to heal

and when it finally did i was too afraid to take it off

sadness and doubt grew in the hollow spaces

rot has begun to eat away at the healthy muscle

leaving nothing but the dregs of my own self-hate

“you’re too difficult to love”

they whisper

i respond

“i know”
