Move on

Today I was able to listen to our songs without crying.

I was able to hear the strum of the guitar without feeling sad.

But then I heard coconut skins

And was reminded how you played it for me

And promised to love me forever

But forever for you was only 8 months long.

And I grew and you stayed the same

I began to see the flaws I didn’t like

And I began to hate our songs.

But now I am thankful

I am able to listen to our songs without crying

Because I have moved on

And so should you.

When future knocks on my door, it emphasizing the growth I have taken the staircase that never stop going. Forever growing and in either direction.


the clouds moving across the pale blue sky, dripping rain down on my patio. My cats sleeping next to each other, butt to butt, when about two years ago they couldn't stand each other. They breathe in

Cold Rush

Time to increase down the aisle. Opening up to something else that I can't see, to feel the assault of love slap me in the face.
