This is/not Goodbye. 

I told her I need the space

To rediscover myself 

Find freedom from blackness

That has slowly encased me

Year by year

Speck by speck 

Time now of no consequence

Only finding my lightness

She seems to understand

This is not new.

But now 

The open-endedness of my journey

Hits home

Hits alone


This is what always frightened me

Except now,

There’s a glimmer of hope

For myself

For life

One thought on “This is/not Goodbye. 

  1. I rarely reveal my life outside my blog posts, but I’ve been where you are right now. I’ve been separated. I’ve been through a divorce I thought I’d never recover from. It’s survivable. I promise you it is.
