Short Poem

I’ve been holding on to little fragments of you for a long time, because I could never bring myself to let you go all at once.

But deep down, I know I need to let go of these pieces. I can’t move on when I’m living next to these reminders of the people we were - the way we wrapped ourselves in each other. I don’t know what healing is meant to look like, but this feels like a good place to start.

What Healing Is Meant To Look Like

By more by Blake Auden

I don’t know
what healing
is meant
to look like,
but washing
the smell of you
from my hoodie
feels like
a good place
to start
