I don’t need it anymore

by Beautiful Tragedy   Oct 17, 2017

It still hurts sometimes.
And sometimes it hurts so god damn bad that all I can do is
Clutch my chest and cry for what we lost but it doesn’t happen
As often as it used to now.
I find that I smile and laugh more now,
I find peace in simple things like sunsets or the warm breeze
And my music has changed from depressing to upbeat.
I look in the mirror and I like what I see;
I look around me and I fall in love with everything and absolutely nothing.
I’m starting to live life again;
And not just live it,
but love it too.
And when I think about it I realize
that I never even should’ve stopped.
Slowly but surely,
I am shedding every piece of yourself that you left behind and sending it back;
Because I don’t need it anymore.

    Clichés are always clichés for a reason ... and 'time is a healer' is so true here ... this is a lovely poem that depicts that awful process really well :-)

    BT, I hope someone nominates this (I am out) as it truly is an inspirational piece of writing and a fine lesson to anyone who feels low: things do get better, we just have to keep keeping on and the sun will shine again.

    All the very best,

      Thank you Ben! I find that some of my best pieces happen to be about myself, and the struggle of finding and loving me. But I’m getting there!
