“You let him in. And you don’t do that with most people.”
I appear uncomplicated at first
But I am a puzzle to be solved
Because I will not give you all the pieces at once.
You have to earn them
by proving you won’t just throw them aside
by proving you will hold my jig-saw mashup of hurts and
help me hold them together when the pieces start slipping through my fingers.
you held in your hands all the pieces
and instead of trying to fit them together
you handed me more pieces,
with jagged edges
that don’t fit anywhere
and left me
