Simple Girl

leave a comment »

Perhaps the present circumstances will seem to you simple, especially when you are in your places of peace. You will begin to think “I am nothing but a simple girl, with a simple heart, and a simple happiness. And you will feel comfortable with the world. But only look back at the past in your wake, and you will see the dark paths you came from, the cave mouths you emerged from, and most especially, the many parts of yourself that fell to avulsion – broken hearts and broken things – artifacts by which you will understand that you are at best a simple girl who suffered through complications, chipped and maybe even dead in certain spots and places. . Written sometime circa 2009-2010
