I Took Your Matches Before Fire Could Catch Me And Here I Am Nursing Burns

I have been trying to forgive

Ready to implode and land in mini-disasters

All over the floor and somehow every wall

At even the slightest and gentlest of probes

A victim in waiting, a victim in the making, a victim alone.

I still feel like a hollowed-out corpse on some days
