A hello to new love feels like a wave goodbye to herself
The domain she calls her skin must let another in
Another in the seat of her emotions, their hands controlling the wheel
I like you’s sound like gun shots
I love you’s sound like sin
Her nakedness a white flag in her war of independence
Skin to skin with another, their breath in sync
She knows she will never breathe on her own again
So, she waves goodbye and hopes when she sees herself again, she is better than she was.
Awash in another’s love she soaks it all in, leaving the hurt behind like a puddle after the rain
A wave goodbye to another love she sees herself rise again.
Anew in her ability to love
Perhaps beginnings hide themselves in ends
