Let it go, all those demons who love you so
Accept your fate the way a dog accepts the heat
Run from it as fast as you can go
Tour the countrysides of your mind — soon you’ll know.
Hear my heartbeat?
The tic-tic sound my pulse makes?
It is quiet among trees
Who share each other’s out-breaths.
Dawn rises for us
We awake to the sound of musical chirping
Bringing in the day
All for one more sip of your smile.
Behold, arrangements of petaled flowers in her hair
Cold stare, her eyes snipe laser star beams through the hearts of her victims
Survivors, speak what you must about her thrust
It’s the coldest winter this summer without her.
Cock your head to the side and let her whisper your sins
Slithering on baited skin
Waiting for her breath to penetrate your eager heart
Startled by her might, though she may terrify you.
It’s not over for you and her —
There is truth behind the curse she stole from you
Agonizingly pierced by nerve pinches up and down your arms
Heart attack, she’s nothing more than gone.
When you want to pack your suitcase
with memories long gone
just so you can open them up in your new beginning
and hold on
to what used to make you suffer
and keep you back
at the end of the line
with time it will be just like the old days
and you will end up back where you began.
Instead, start fresh
make new traditions that heal you
and throw away the old you
and forgive those who know you
become a new truth.
The fight will be grueling
constantly battling with the mind
harming the body
losing the spirit —
It’s not all bad.
Because your muscles will tear
it will ache in your bones
it will manifest as darkness in your soul.
Without that, though,
the only way to go
is back up again.
Keep fighting and you will win.
