backwards

BY: Shelbi Henny

foundation
going back to the origin 
that found this damaged little one
broke and a stranger 
knowing nothing of romance
blindfolded to be the only one
cling on to the forbidden fruit of you 
walking away was the hardest 
though we are never apart 
aggressive to the nationality
feeling i can do better
running the wrong direction
capturing falling stars
that turn quickly to ash
comparing what i use to have
adding honey to the aftermath
feeling deserted 
wanting to go back but i know
that i hurt 
yet you hurt me too
