Hatred, anger, and bitterness.

Sadness, loss, and loneliness.


Oozed from pores miles away.


So thick it touched others in their core.

And then limits were reached.

Infected wounds burst unable to hold poison a moment longer.

Realizing life can not thrive in the disease of unforgiveness,

Realizing there is much life to live beyond this pain.

In the sweet surrender.

In the sweet release.

Healing will come.

it costs

and fractures

taking a piece of you

and replacing it with a piece of them

love changes you in unpredictable ways

softening your soul

and when it is time to say goodbye

to someone who has stolen your heart

you are left with hope even though the future is unsure

because you gave what you had

you held your heart open

you weren't afraid to truly live

you were vulnerable, real, and raw

the pain of love did not stop you


when love is present

souls touch

and time or space cannot fracture that.
