I’m Sorry That I’m Not Easier To Love

Easier to love

I’m sorry that I’m not easier to love
That I am made of barbwire fences
And walls crowned with razor wire
There is blood all over your fingers
You are a true warrior, determined
I admire your courage to continue
Even though you are ripped apart
By the piercing of my cold silence
I long to let down my sharp edges
But my skin has already been torn
And I’m scared to cut myself open
To allow you to step closer to me
For I have sewn the bloody hands
Of everyone who has come before
Who thank me that I mended them
Then watch me bleed until I die.

  1. Kathy,
    You convey each emotion so well. I don’t just read your words, I can feel them, deeply. Just one quality a gifted writer has, and you have them all! Thank you for sharing your life and your talent with me and the other fortunate people who have come to love and appreciate all of your words. 💜
