quiet now

i can be like a cornered animal when hurt. vicious. i can be the uncontrollable bitch snarling at the end of a leash. and i’m sorry for that. i’ve had my teeth unsheathed, angry and scared,  but i’m going to be quiet now. i’m back to who i really am – the better version of me.

i loved.

i lost.

but there’s so much i gained. and i’m glad for that. 

and i’m keeping my heart open.
