Watching the night filter away and bands of light emerging through the sky, my heart feels heavy.
I wish, I could get lost
in this
Perfect moment of stillness.
And be enveloped in its peace.
And pardon.

Something feels different this time. Still a space.
But less empty.
Just me. And for the first time since before I can remember, that’s ok.
Because there will forever be you.
Closer, than my jugular vein.
