Ripping off the Band-Aid

This one's newish, from earlier this spring. I wrote it off the cuff, to get the healing started. And then I sat on it for a while. I wasn't ready to share. In a way, I'm still not. But the only way to get better is to stop bottling it up. So, here it is.


The Beginning of the End

As it was in the beginning,
so it is in the end.
Two as one.
Alone together.
Wrapped in each other,
hanging on.
Knowing,
but not believing.
Understanding,
but still hoping
And then…
One lets go,
Turns away.
And there they are,
One as two.
Together.
Alone.
