A Dose of Kyle

Writing by Kyle Freelander


She is all edges

and I see you try

to sand her down

so she is as smooth

as a stone made for skipping

across your heart,

but still edges grow about her.

Like plants in the doormat,

they appear when you are not looking,

as if overnight. You shake

your head in disbelief

as she stands strong

against you when you hoped

she would melt at your feet

and heed your command

–yet again –but she does not

crumble and she does not bleed

for you anymore. Steel warrior

of her life starting today,

and you dare to ask

for tomorrow.
