Brittle

by Jodi Milner Years of rage and passion Captured with a fevered pen. Pages of brittle memory Every desire, annoyance Every fight, joy, and pain Now a source of shame. She hides herself away Crossing out the best parts Afraid of her own truth.

Jodi,

Short. Sweet. Purposeful. I like the idea of the pen and crossing out parts, etc. Makes me think of someone looking at themselves and "editing" themselves. Almost sad to think about! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you all. I wasn't sure if Jim would take it and actually missed when he posted it, so I'm a bit late.
