Long Nights

thank you, for the shame and disgust

your touch left

lingering, on my skin

thank you for the long nights,

i spent carving lines on my body

thank you, for the pain i felt in my chest,

after i let the one i loved go,

because i couldn’t love myself like he loved me

for the pain that you caused

and the pain that you erased

my heart has learned forgiveness

i hope that yours does too.
