By
it is the monster inside of me that destroys you.
the dust between the cracks that dirties yourfeet.
tell me how to fix it, to fix me, fix you,
confessions don’t always take place onhard, wooden benches.
and forgiveness isn’t always signed in blood.
please understand,explain it to me.
after that, kiss me, and tell me it’s over.

This is one of my my favourite poems.
I saw it in a TeenInk magazine a couple years back, and I never forgot it.
And today I found it once again. :)
I love it mucho.
It's beautiful, and painful. It says the words I never have the guts to say out loud.
....Thank you.
