“Maybe love isn’t something that comes full circle. It just ebbs and flows, in and out just like the people in our lives” – Colleen Hoover, It Ends With Us
Sometimes we think, it’s easy to manage to–
Balance the flow of our lives, each passage,
Of words and wonders we travel down fast.
Of memories, dreams curling blissfully through.
Of laughter, love, reason to again bloom,
Beyond the memories trapping us, lasting;
Never completely leaving until they pass,
In moments they choose, new whispers approve;
The coming of the dawn, when slumber breaks,
Though we’re scarred and hollow, gloves of lace —
Will hide the marks of yesterday; fashion —
A hug giving warmth, with new love, sweet dreams.
Yesterday fades, sparks today’s gentle stream,
Brings reassurance, your arms hold me dear.
