yesterday

there are moments that can

stop you from healing when

you need it most like a

enemy who gets to give condolences first

or a mean one who signs the cast

when they are the one who broke that bone

and as anyone who has gone through

this knows full well

that a pillow can only

absorb so many tears from your eyes

but sometimes there is only

going to be comfort

in learning how to say goodbye

yet the trick is convincing yourself

that even falling out of the clouds

is not fatal

and the real trick of letting go

of pain is a rough lesson

and you are only lucky if you

learn how to not let it

break you final
