taking knives from my lovers

to cut their hearts with

how I was cut by my past

soothing my wounds

by taking innocence 

how mine was taken

taking back control

from a stolen childhood

feeling the impact

the scars ease

and the knives melt 

by receiving and opening 

to what I had been denied

no longer taking 

but giving

creating healing

pleasure and joy

returning time 

to the moments it was lost
