I got to write myself beautiful now. I got to treat this girl every once and a while now, and I have no clue where to start. I haven’t spoken words in first person since I `have learned to hide behind the bruises of others, but I figured it out because I have to write myself beautiful now. I know too many ways to use my words to save everyone except myself. This body breaks itself into holes. All that is broken; fuck the healing process. I’ve learned to “leave” my hands into baskets so that the society may stop losing faith in one another. I’ve promised too many people that I am made out of glue. Everyone is starring at me like a magic trick, no wonder all that I am good at is the wanting to disappear.

So I can put the fucking gun down, look the girl in the mirror in the eye, and tell her I am so sorry for blaming you for the monster they have made of you, recesses pieces, me on the ground trying to make peace with the walls I put up myself, but realized gravity makes no exceptions to anyone. So to the ground these four walls will fall because I say so, brick by brick, border to border, till all there is left is open sky. With open eyes, both palms up, both legs open, this time because this time I am not looking for salvation. It is the sweat from nobody else’s body but my own. This time I will love myself better, because this time I will love myself first because that is the option left. This time, I will use
