i believe in everyone’s rehabilitation except my own

by Stephanie Ambroise


for those of you
who used my heart
as a halfway house…

i hope the outside someday
sees you as safe. that your lovers
do not flee from you
when you feel
strong enough
to leave here.

….
because
robert frost wouldn’t take
my heart to anywhere.
too many leaves.
too trodden black.
