The Cure

How can you offer me

a cure?


you cannot see

that the ‘sickness’ inside

which you want to remove

is the very essence

of ‘me’.

Your cure

would prove fatal,

leaving no more than

a shadow,

a husk -

but I won’t argue

for you always know best.

This feels so thick to read, and I think it's perfect. There's pain, rejection, doubt, but surrender in this poem and I dig it. Great job Hull. - E.E
