At a moments notice, right as lips seal together every ounce of pain you’ve felt for feeling like you weren’t enough fades away like the night in the day. Shining amongst your shoulders and warning your heart to the comforting realization that it really can get better.
Nights aren’t like an endless typhoon of emotions stained in memory anymore. The pain becomes and old picture shoved away into the cracks of the floorboard, never to be seen again.
You now remember the way the leaves at the tips of trees dance for you at the gentle push of the wind, a beautiful sight to take in but one to savor.
Through the cycles of love I have chosen to learn from each departure and with it a new section of armor to protect the ones I love from past mistakes.
Like a Phoenix rising through despair I’m finally able to breathe again.
