Flying On Tears

I did not ask to be cracked open,
[and fly]
nor did I seek long-
suffering

I wanted nothing –
to do with Love,
or any sort of Eros!

I sought companionship;
dearest of Friends,
penetrating sinews,
with acceptance

I yearned for protection,
of heart –
a Being that would respect it; kindly,
my desires were of simplicity,
no twistings or games –
to play

{I did not even know how,
or comprehend such monstrosities}

my shell shattered,
slicing small pieces,
tearing apart – Me,
so effortlessly,
with gingerly hands;
maneuvering soft petals,
from a tender rose,
digging tiny lesions;
with thorns

I did not crave, lustful wantings,
nor did I seek out a touch,
as I dwelled within my whole shell,
I merely asked to be loved;
behind the fragile security of my cracked shell,
warmed into peace

I drank my own tears to hold me over,
until, I could meet someone;
who could (would) cry over [into]Β me,
{help me know what it means to be loved}
yet, my hunger to know of this,
{this; unknowing thing}
opened a crashing crush –
vulnerable lonely entity,
torn from others lack of regard

a hopeful bird; as myself,
continued to fly,
on the strength and weakness –
chromatically powerful tears,
I did not asked to be cracked open,
but my wings still have a need to fly
