I know it takes time

I erased those words I had written for you

Watch them dissolve into the whiteness of the paper.

I emptied the space you’d rented in my mind

Listened to the thunder in my heart beats

As your memories began to unwind.

 

But I know it takes time, to let go,

To loosen the grip, to tighten my lips and

try not to smile

In the random mention of your name.

I know it takes time for the unsettled heart

to understand that things are barely the same.

 

I carried with me a veil, that covered

my soul, glorified dents and unattended cracks.

And I let all our baggage sail back,

in the darkest of nights

like those quiet, rusted and worn out fleet.

I sketched a journey where our paths would never meet

 

But I know it takes time to unlove someone you have loved

To unlearn the only truth you have lived by

To accept that this truth was just another lie.
