A Box Of Darkness

I took my vulnerability, placed it in a box
Gift wrapped, with a black ribbon
I pulled it from my chest, unlaced it from my lungs
Deep beneath my molars, down underneath
My fingernails
Scraped it from the freckles which lay, sleepily
Scattered down my neck
Those that you had kissed that night
Those that I had let you kiss
I pulled on that dark thread somewhere inside my mind,
Unravelled myself, just a little
Just enough
To hold it all together
Just enough
To let myself unravel
I held it out with hopeful eyes, dropped soft into your hands
You looked at it, at parts of me
And now I can't finish this poem
