Limits

by Rania Moallem   Jun 10, 2020


I can allow those heavy moments
to slip between the cracks of my character
and mock my flaws.

I can let my naivety insult my ego
in the dark.

But I can't let you see my pain
scattered like powder in the light.

I can't let you break my soul again.

I am broken
but my pieces are whole.

    I see Rania, I meant::
    I hop you let your strength, instead of your naivety, insult your ego...in the dark.

    reflecting on

    I can let my naivety insult my ego
    in the dark.

    This speak’s volumes to me!
    The ending lines strangely make me feel heavy hearted, like I know how it feels yet I dont.
    Thats rambling I know, but this poem is soo good it really is!
