This is about me

Tiny pieces

Content warning: swear words

This is not about you
this is not about being mean to you
this is not about not loving you
this is not about wanting a man-bun
this is about me
this is about me crashing
this is about the past
rearing its ugly head
and dominating my world
this is about the core of me
feeling like it's whirling into
a million tiny pieces
sprayed out into the universe
this is about all the things -
the things I didn't finish
the places in me that feel unlovable
the parts of me I've kept in check
for too damned long
this is about the tears
that don't want to stop
this is about the aging of my body
this is about the things done to me
too long ago to remember
this is about a lifetime of saying yes
when I really wanted to say no
this is about playing it safe
rather than saying fuck it and
dancing wild in the streets
this is about all the times
no one listened
this is about all the times
I felt insignificant
this is about healing my heart
and claiming my soul
and being my fully wild self
this is not about you
this is about me
