Torn

Torn like the pages

From a banned book

Used for fueling a fire

Self-doubted

Knowing aversion.

Inversion of curiosity

Between the covers

That I never pulled open

Or gently folded closed.

The words are too harsh

For the audience. The spectators

Judging the story

Not knowing what it

Might reveal. In time,

This will evolve.

Torn between

Knowing and

Not knowing

What this could be.

Dedicated weekly readings

Will crack open once every year.

But once will never be enough

To rectify the damage

Already done.
