why does growing feel like breaking? i read this,
this morning, and i realized...he never broke me. i was never broken.
i was learning, like one learns their ABCs, or multiplication tables,
or how to ride a bike - it wasn't easy and it doesn't happen overnight.

think that i was broken. i am strength, personified. and now that i am
more myself than i was with him, i know more of what i want. it's as
laura said...i want a witness, an equal.
