torn

i am torn
torn between
inner and outer
i can only take
so much of the latter
before the whipping wind
blows away all
the fluff and
i am stripped bare
my seeds
scattered

The words that struck me were "I can only take so much" and yet then we take more and more, and that's what hurts us, I think.
