Bow No More

I can bow no more

My knees are open wounds

Ground with dirt and circumspect self-hatred.

 

No,

I am only laughing now.

 

Scraping away at the bottom of darkness

With my bloody fingertips

That grasped at your love and acceptance.

 

Yes,

I am only laughing now.

 

Because I can bow no more.
