I did try to walk away with grace.

I tried to walk away with dignity,

with pride.

even with tears streaming out of

my eyes and onto my lips,

I tried so hard to choose grace.

because grace never seemed

to be given to a woman like me.

to a woman who put

herself back together with the thread

of her past self

as her hands bled from the needle.

to a woman with such a fire

that she has her own

burn marks that she

can't seem to heal.

self inflicted pain

in the name of love

is still self-harm.

and a woman with a track record

like mine knows the ends and outs

of her self inflicted pain.

it seemed to only get worse

the more you loved me.

so forgive me if grace was forgotten.

it's not like she and I were close anyways.
