Justify

Opening her oldest wounds

feelings of uncertainty always looming

seeking confirmation of another leaving

so she doesn’t have to take the blame;

regardless of her deflecting

underneath the pain and anxious worry

she knows she is the the one that leaves

justified by leavers that made her bleed.
