Love iv

If I set the truth in me free, will you still love me?

Can I trust you to make sense of the bundle of hurt I have clogging my aorta?

To salvage the bit of sanity I have in me left?


Will you be able to mould the softness that has caused others to take advantage

into a strong woman firmly planted?

Tell me that you can make sense of my anatomy,

Understand that I cry when I’m feeling overwhelmed,

Withdraw when it all seems too hard,

And talk simply to be heard.


I may never tell you that when we touch sometimes I feel empty

Will you be able to sense that, caringly draw back, embrace me with a hug,

And show what we have is actually love.



About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: My literature blog: NMx
