If only you'd just hit me. Let me watch my skin swell, blister, bleed even. Turn the prettiest mix of purples and reds. Then watch my body's magical healing powers, seal the wound. Color return to my peanut butter brown. I'd take that over this heartbreak. This long drawn aching nagging pain the permeates the air around me. I can't take not knowing when it'll end. Not knowing what little thing will trigger the levees to break and waterfalls to stream from my eyes without notice. Loves to happen when I'm out in public. That burning in my chest. Lump my throat. It suffocates me now, as I try to swallow my agony. I just want to make it home, where I can cry alone.
