The Scalpel

Scraping my life away with your clumsy scalpel

You shaped my reality into something unrecognisable.

I could have been safe without you.

Shredded by your promises and my own failings

A life apart was inevitable, but

I’m still waiting for you to put the knife down

To let me go, so I can remember how to smile.
