10 For Women Who Break Often

@@

Before you learnt to rewrite love on the old leaflets of your skin, you had spent nights


clawing at walls that won't yield for memories that won't heal, calling for god


in all the languages mother didn't teach seeking a sign


or a voice or a dream


a reason, to stop yourself


from growing smaller and smaller.


Before you had come to accept that echoes are simply voices that didn't make it home and


not every dream can be cradled to life inside palms scarred by thorny ardencies


you first broke yourself into many waters and fed them to lost men


but they rolled you in their mouths,


gargled you on tongues that have forgotten the taste of affection


and spat you out


said you were lukewarm, too soft,


too hard, said a woman cannot be both water


and fire. @@
