From Jennica Harper:

July 8, 2016

You long to be hit in the jaw

or nose, no time to cry out.

You feel the bomb of fist,

a moment later, the white flash.

You want someone

to not hold back, you want

to be bruised

from the outside.

*

You want her to leave him

because you won’t.

– From “Wood”
