the original title gave too much away

wearing fragility
like borrowed clothes
she supposes
wanting to give
them back
clashing with
what she is selling/
hoping we’re buying

she wields the scars
like a weapon
protecting her
from the harmless
reclaiming the distance
she hates

she holds on
to the pain
fear and guilt
and disbelief
and pride

she lets the guard
come down
just enough
to be cruel

she misses

she wants
in theory

she lies

    So… um… what was the original title?
