When the time comes
I will not give you away.
I could never have the audacity
to believe
that I have ever owned you,
that you were ever mine to give.
You have always
possessed the significant grace
of a woman
that belongs wholeheartedly
to herself.

I will still
spend some days
wasting away in front of the mirror
waiting for answers
that have no words.

I will still
take pauses and breaths
between words
and you will wonder
where I have gone,
when I will return.

This will never be easy,
this will never be over.
Some scars heal
but never really disappear.

I’m sorry
will have to be enough.
I’m trying
will have to be enough.

I have
never
seen anything
more beautiful
than watching a person
preform their true passion.
The art of soul
is one of the greatest
worldly
gifts.

I feel you
in the breaths
between words.
The pauses
my heart takes,
it gets tired.
You are the rambling
thoughts
in my mind.
Stuttering fingers
that devour
everything
anything.


You are the
punctuation
in the poem.
When I need.
To take a breath.

Things fell apart
when I
no longer
needed
you
to save me.
I found
my own
way out,
and you hated me for it.

They say to
cut
things from your life
that are hurting you.
Medically speaking
this is not
‘just to be safe,’
this was
a last resort.
You are killing
me.

You were just
something
calm
to cool my head
when things got too
loud.
I devoured you
like you were the
cure.
I’m sorry.
