UNREVISED

betrayed by myself

ripped in two, stabbed

then, slowly,

pulled apart

Vulnerability is,

perhaps,

the hardest to comprehend.

It is the ultimate paradox:

to be strong you must be weak.

Sometimes i want to stop caring.

How others feel.

If they like me.

What they think.

How i come across.

Whether i am wanted.

But being wanted is like needing air.

Our humanity, much like our physicality,

demands certain necessities.

Air.

Water.

Food.

Love.

To crave love is synonymous with existence

To push aside our nature

Our desire to be loved, wanted,

is to eliminate our emotionality

at its most basic sense.

As if to say, “here is the day”

without the sun.
