Landmines

by Loolwa Khazzoom • December 13, 2015 • Songs

There are holes
In your foundation
That leak all over our friendship
And contaminate my life

Leaving me struggling
Shrinking
Always stepping around your landmines

In the name of radical acceptance
In the name of forgiveness
In the interest of receiving the good
That feeds my soul

But my soul is perpetually
On guard with you
To the point
I no longer feel authentic

And I would lack integrity
Were I to continue

You did this to us
