Onion-Heart

No matter how many times I read it

it still hurts

the pain is as fresh as the day I first received the news

the one person I opened up to

the one person I confided in

doesn’t

love

me.

.

this takes away all my hope

and shatters my inner being

I want to hide myself up in a blanket

folding and folding

smaller and smaller

until I am no more

.

This reminds me

of my stupidity

Fool am I.

.

Never again,

say I,

as I seal up my heart

and lock it

in that place I know I will never look

so may I never again

peel my soul

raw as an onion

bare my heart

just to get it crushed

and embarrassed.
