I ain’t done much healing

They say time is supposed to heal you but I ain’t done much healing

Letting you go took so much out of me

Accepting that you are gone still pierces the depths of my being

It’s like a fire that won’t stop. A flame that won’t go out.

I look for you sometimes, stupidly hoping to catch a glimpse of you

I still my everything in me to hear your voice; to hear you laugh

I don’t quite know how to piece my heart back together again

I don’t quite know what to do with the ocean of tears that won’t stop flowing

I don’t quite know how to giggle the same. How to love unreservingly. How to trust the process of life.

 

Today all the women in me need you

I need you to hold my hand and walk with me, to sit on the side of the road with me

I need you to help me put back together the pieces of my heart

They say time is supposed to heal you but I aint done  much healing

I wept for you with tears I didn’t even know I had

I waited for you to come back, to call, to text or better yet, to shout my name from across the road

The crevices of my heart and all the passages of my soul need you today
