time really does heal wounds (goodbye, for real this time)


by lexi

leaving you was cutting a piece of a string loose

which i had equated to freedom, which i had assumed meant

endless redwoods and vanilla skies

just how leaving the others felt like so

and it did; for months i swore it did

i was kissing fresh air and faces, and my heart —

it no longer felt like it was waiting for an echo

so that it could beat in response

so i don’t know how to describe what it was

standing on the edge of a ship at 2am, flying

underneath a bridge and making a wish to any god

where i finally felt the string i had cut off

circle to meet its closed loop

if you’re out there reading this

i hope you’ve found your vanilla sky

mine only came with time
