I Promise I’m Not So Broken

I promise I’m not so broken.
I promise there’s more to me than sharp edges and emptiness.
I promise that I’m whole and I’m warm and I’m able to be touched.
I promise that I can be what you need of me.

You see I was broken.
I was shattered and I was worn.
But I promise that there’s more to me than that.
I can be the girl I used to be.
I can laugh for hours and smile so much that my face might just get stuck like that.
I can be cuddly and wrap myself around you to the point where you wouldn’t be able to tell where you end and I begin.

You make me want to heal.
You make me want to believe in fairytales and happy-endings.
Because even though there’s still a good chance that you & I might not work, the potential of it still fills me with glee.
You make me feel like I can open to you, that you wont cut me up inside and leave me cold.
You make me feel warm.

I’m just asking for a little time.
Give me a little time to untangle myself from this web of vines I used to block people away.
Even better, why don’t you pick up your sheathe and help me hack away this separation?
Why don’t you extend your hands out to me to pull me through and bring you along with you?
Because while I want to grow and get better on my own, I also want to continue along with you on your journey… on our journey

We can go through all of this together. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
