6 Months

These past 6 months

Have taken more from me

Than I could ever describe.

They have thrown me to the dirt,

Picked me back up,

And pushed me down again.

They have bruised my skin,

Jumbled the line between fact and fiction

In my head,

And made my heart yearn

To return

To where I have once been.

After 6 months, I’d like to say

I’ve found meaning in random accidents,

That I’ve learned to forgive my own misjudgments,

And to trust in some unwinding plan.

But I’m just not there yet.

I can’t yet think of these losses

Without longing for my past.

I can’t remember how good we once had it

Without sliding into a gray haze.

I can’t honestly say I’ve yet made peace

With the turbulence of how time passes.

But I do still wrap myself in gratefulness

For the start of each new day.

And maybe in its own way,

That will be enough to save me,

To push me toward another day.
