Half Truths

Don’t tell me

your good parts

Do not

make me laugh

my lungs out

when I’m done with you

Tell me the rotten


Tell me who broke

you so

Show me the cracks

before you make me

run my fingers over

the smoothness

and you’ll feel

like you’ve finally crossed

my boundaries

I can assure you baby,

you’ll have only traced my outlines

And I’ll still be just

a selfish woman


to willingly love

– Ananya Maheshwari
