a typewriter poem


i may seem like        a hard ass         sassy strong sister

i am

but i am also          marshmallowy soft

squeezable centre                   easily damaged, bent out of shape

in need of tenderness, warmth, love

and yes

though i hate to admit


if i give you my squidgy, malleable inner self

look after it

take care of it

treat it as if it were you own

precious centre

because although i may seem strong      without needs

this heart of mine hurts

my centre

needs love
