I am hurt. I am afraid. #Poetry

I am hurt
You hurt me
I am afraid

Right now
It looks like anger
It feels crushing

Then
I will not hate you
I will be whole again

It feels important to me to mention here that I do not currently hate anyone even though I am hurting. In this poem, I feel it necessary to clarify this point AND to acknowledge my recognition that unchecked anger and pain that is not properly tended to will lead to hate, which I am committed to resisting so that I can be whole. Obviously, I don’t like to analyze something I’ve written and I prefer to let the reader let a poem speak to them, but this is the exception. 😉

Thanks for reading!
