Life Again

I forgot what it was like,

Being sharp tongued

And full of fire.

I’ve been living

With this weighted love

For far too long,

Thought you were worth

A diminished me.


Now I feel again

That insatiable spark of life

Rushing through my veins,

The high of having possibilities

Brush my fingertips,

The flirty, playful

Pitter patter of my heart.


Though I’ll miss,

From time to time,

Your solid warmth

On lonely nights,

It’s worth the pain of losing

To feel the flow of life again

In a body almost numb.
