Resilience

I'll tuck myself
into myself

because your bed
is no longer
my security blanket

and your arms
cannot encircle
my sense of self.

I'll tuck myself
into myself

because I created
my own warmth
when you iced over

and morning frost
cannot freeze
my bony core.

I'll tuck myself
into myself

because I am

resilient

and you are

cracked.

An extremely well expressed situation. Most of us eventually have to rely on ourselves. Those who do not learn to tuck themselves into themselves I think are unfortunate to not have the stoic independence. This is a very good piece.

Tight, concise, and full of striking and original lines. Yes, it's good to know that we'll be alright after the storm has passed. Enjoyed.
