strong

it did not seem so at first glance
how very delicate those cracks
on the surface of your taut flesh
would crumble at the softest touch

you think exposed lines make you weak
so you cover your wants, your needs
but the strength it requires to speak
springs from a place that’s far more deep

it is not despite but because, you see
those lines draw you closer to me
