peeling back the layers

can leaving you feeling

open, exposed, raw,


but you find fresh ideas

just under those layers,

new ways of looking

at the world.


this world that


breaks my heart.


i’ll just keep peeling

till i get past

the broken bits.

    Broken bits often respond well to healing. Raw and exposed is often of extreme discomfort to me too. Though something I’d do again, in retrospect.
