I’m not sure how you do it.
You strip me naked and rip open my flesh…
Digging around in the deepest layers of me
and ripping me to shreds until I feel raw and broken
and you find the answers that you are looking for.
While it’s happening I feel anger and it borders on hatred and helplessness.
But once it’s over…I can’t be mad.
I can only feel love and appreciation because each time you dig deep into my core, I learn something new about myself.
