love, I can’t promise you a day that it doesn’t hurt anymore
I can’t promise that the knife between your ribs will slip away
I won’t tell you that the ache deep in your soul will find a balm, not even with him
I won’t say there will be a day where you can walk into that place and truly call it home
Instead, I will give you moments.
You will have moments where it feels like you’re breathing freely for the first time
You will have precious seconds where you stretch your neck and find that the weight of the world is gone
You will stand outside in a thunderstorm and fall in love with the feeling of rain on your skin all over again
You will run barefoot at night and remember what it feels like to be really, truly happy
You will burn like wildfire
love, I can’t promise you a day entirely free of it
But I will promise you moments.
And for now, that will be enough.
