Stain the stars with snow,
And roast them over flames.
It's hard to feel anything
When all that you feel
Is encased in ice
Or burned away.

They rip her apart,
Cut her wide open,
Let her boil beneath
The salt of the sea.
And as she grows colder,
Blazing with rage,
Her hatred will harden
And swallow her whole.

This shield is a mask
She wears for the world.
On one side, purple,
Opposing blue.
A catlike smile,
A grin she's grown.
And a rose, of course,
Bittersweet blue.

She hates herself
For what she's done,
Who she is,
How she's handled hate.
Who she's hurt,
How she's hurting,
And what she's doing now...

Trained to trust
When she was young;
Older now, she learns again
That what they taught
Was meant to tame,
And any truth
Has been betrayed.

How many lessons
Does it take to learn?

Trust none, love none,
Be never betrayed again.
No one can love her,
For no one can know her,
No one can see her
Except a few far away...

There's a distance between her
And the rest of the world.
A glassy wall, her grey-blue eyes,
Separates her from them.
To live, she must bleed,
Give all that she is
To those who barely see.

But could she be wrong?
Has she blinded herself,
Masked too much,
Hidden herself too well?
She might be repeating
The same cycle again...
But maybe her trust
Will be safe in their hands.

Darkening daily,
This star will die,
Unless she feels
A trust that's real...
And learns what it means
To love without hate.

Maybe that lesson
Will be the one that sinks in.
The hardest poem for me to write in a long time.

I wrote a poem in my darkest period ever (when I had clinical depression) that had a line something like, "He's hurt too many hearts to count". It was about me but wrote it in third person. So I definitely feel for you even if I can't fully empathize outside of the situation. Hang in there! Keep writing and keep talking to friends!!!
