Fall to Rise

Dumped-woman-sitting-on-a-bench-585x329I fall so I can rise
Higher and stronger
Scars a testament
To resilience
Nothing more
Transcendent pain
Burning like fire
Soothing in time
When left alone
But I still miss you
The warmth of your touch
Solid and firm
Yet soft and pliant
Fitting inside of me
A distant memory
But I can’t move on
Lost in the fall
Struggling to rise
And you’ve moved on
A torrent of emotions
Shaking my core
Watching it unwind
This thread of love
Or whatever it was
Until I finally stand
Hands shaking
Forming perfect fists
I rise in defiance
With tears in my eyes
But I wipe them away
And keep going
It’s a new day.
