BETWEEN THE BONE AND BROKEN, PART 1; HEAVY. DUTY

 

Heavy. Duty.
Responsibility
is weighty.
Weighs on the burdens,
on the burdens that mount.
How the distance mounts over
the months. The years. The tears.
The fears. The identities.
The identities we partake in,
we personas we put on,
we pretend to,
we play with,
the personalities
we scrub away to start again.
Once again. Heavy. Duty.
The responsibility
of owning
the ownership
of always ending up
on our own. Heavy.
Shedding parts of ourselves
like snake skin, too thin to shake.
Thin are layers we’re left with,
the leachers leach their lot
and leave us with little.
Little are the layers now.
Lighter. But Heavy.
The Duty.
Responsibility is heavy
in the hands of just one.
In hearts not always held.
