"I would rather die of passion than of boredom"
[Vincent van Gogh]


Still Open

Still Open

© STILL OPEN by DELAFOI

I’m open. Born naked.
Fragile but unbreakable. 


It hurts. I’ve been told it's supposed to. 
It stings. I’ve been fooled it has to. 

I tried to numb the pain. 
For many years. 
Built a wall. Armed myself. 
With sticks and stones. 
With a terrible attitude. 

I started a war. All eyes on the battlefield. 
The perfect distraction. The perfect illusion. 
It turns pain to anger. Grief to revenge.
Boys into men. Men to machines. 

But war is devastating. 
War is murder. 
War is endless. 
War is where you hide until your soul finds you. 

There is still pain but I tore down the wall. 
I am unarmed. 
Fragile but unbreakable.
Born naked. 
Still open.
