'there is a girl' freewrite

there is a girl who feels familiar

and i will not give her

everything of mine

this time -

i will print her skin with wet kisses

creating pools and portals

with my lips, i will

linger over sensitive skin, and

i will not fall in -

 

there is a girl who feels familiar

and it has barely been a day, but

she does not have to stay -

i will hold her with full presence,

give her complete moments, and

remember that my future is for

loving myself, too -

 

there is a girl who kisses my cheek

and has already forgiven me

 

i know that love requires

practice so i will

wrestle with my roots

and replant them

if i have to -

 

i will recognize loss as

a process of cycle and

trust in my movement

towards beginnings -

 

there is a girl who feels familiar

and i am different from then
