“I gave you everything you wanted
Everything you needed to know me
The real me
I laid out all of the pieces for you
And you tried to put me together
But you only wanted to see the joy
So you took those pieces and tried to make them connect
And they didn’t
You were angry that they wouldn’t fit
Angry that my good could not come without my bad
Angry that I had to be everything, and not just the happiness
I will not apologize for the fact that all of me is not one thing, not one moment, not one emotion”

– poem from my new project
