mentor epistle II

You care.  You think I'm destructive,
you think I'm manipulative, even to you, and yet
you care.

You keep me safe, in a way,
you protect me.
You don't want to see me come to harm.
Even with all my faults.

A scratched, mangled phone; broken glass

my shoulders curl with guilt, my chin lowers
as i tuck myself away
to hide
behind the covers

I'm the girl who hides under pillows,
and scrapes her hands on sidewalks.
You are the invisible mentor hidden in my palms:
watching, knowing.

Why do you care? How can you care?
when I make chaos just for fun,
molding it to sick perfection
and setting it free
to destroy both our lives--

you care.

and i cry.

i'm sorry, i'm sorry

    I really like this poem Avery. There are sometimes difficult tumultuous relationships in life where the power play is lopsided or off; some are worth fighting for though:) Amitiés
