Imagine my surprise

IMG_0472

I’m 18
a history riddled with depression and
violence
imagine my surprise when you feel
Safe.

I’m 19
starting fights
testing your resolve
daring you to leave
imagine my surprise when you
Stayed.

I’m 21
cuddling on my couch
you ask why I am crying
and I say I wish I knew
imagine my surprise when you
Held on tight.

I’m 25
high dose of zoloft
a regimen of exercise and therapy to
maintain stability
you kiss my cheek and tell me
you have never loved me more
imagine my surprise, you still make me
Blush.
