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
