warm in the sun

please forgive my awkward response
to your kindness

i’m so accustomed to drowning
the little girl inside me

as i had taken to mating with reptiles
because i am a damaged woman
who does not believe she deserves warmth

it’s so much easier to be with someone hateful
rather than acknowledge all along
you have needed to be loved
