But time takes time, darling–

My feelings are strewn.

 

Like leaves to grass,

Like shattered glass,

My heart is a tremor…

A monsoon.

 

Trying to sleep, the cotton feels rough.

I knew it’d be hard but damn–

Love is enough.

 

Like pages to books,

Like bubbling brooks,

My story is yours…

 

Our story

 

You took.

 


 

Spread kindness and cheer, xo
