my heart aches for the girl that i was when i first met you ━ wide-eyed and gullible, with a skin so thin, you could see your words form like frayed knots in my stomach.
truthfully, i didn’t mean to bleed the way that i did, but your tongue was so sharp and i was a fool to ever let you map out the softest parts of me.
why did you throw me aside the way that you did? you knew i was made of glass when you picked me up, so why couldn’t you just set me down gently?
the ruin that you boast about is a collection of heartbreak that i never once asked to be a part of.
but, here i am, shaky hands and all, trying to salvage all that was left behind in the destruction of innocence.
/ i've hardened myself now. better luck next time.
