You have cataloged your scars
like your body is a library-

to be read through &
learned from.

You think of
all the little boys
whose greedy fingers
graced
your pages.

You are angry-

none
cared for you
properly:

folding
creasing
& breaking
your spine.

They left you
on a shelf
to gather dust.

& why
should you ever
forget that?
Secret Series.

Anonymous secret: "Sometimes, when I’m alone I like to think of the ways I’d greet the people I’ve hated in the future… Sometimes it's not even a greeting."
More can be found here: iorbither.tumblr.com/

I know that sometimes it's hard to forgive the people who have wronged us, believe me I do. And we shouldn't just forget it, but for the sake of our own physical and mental health--we should move on. For every time you've fallen and bruised your knees--those bones have become that much stronger. You can walk away, don't let anger and hate consume you.

I have spent the mature part of my life obsessing myself with the arts, most especially poetry, as I am an avid poet myself. Most of the time, the things I see people write are. . . Horrendous. Like a twenty year old writer with a ten year old mind track. It has been really difficult to find good works such as this, that I can actually enjoy reading, which I did with your poem. 
Great job, man.

This I can relate to.  I have to remind myself on a daily basis that I am no longer the person that let myself get used in order to self-destruct.
It's hard.
