    before self-love; it hurts.

    they think it’s easy-
    this work,
    undoing yourself to find
    what has never lived inside.
    the pain feels like
    more than it’s worth.
    confidence,
    self-love,
    i’ve been looking for you,
    and losing;
    there is no strength left
    in these bones.
