it didn’t BREAK me!

By Reicia Jones

Like the sun that sets and loses its shine
Love indeed does fade with time
From the front of my mind
To the back of it like a distant memory
Leaving me feeling empty
My new ambition
Is to no longer give you permission
To hurt me
To mistreat me
You no longer have my permission
And this transition
Will be a process
Yes
But I’m determined to make progress
Each step purposeful
And intentional
I’ve learned that love does fade over time
From the front of my mind
To the back like a distant memory
Leaving me feeling empty
You awakened a fire within me
That gave me light
And the desire to fight
For you, for it, for us
But it takes two in the ring
Of love in order for this thing
To come to pass
Or even last
And like the sun that sets
And loses its shine
Love indeed does fade over time
From the front of my mind
To the back like a distant memory
Leaving me feeling empty

Over the horizon down the line
The sun will rise again
Love shall rise in me again
In a different direction
A different reflection
A brand new vantage point
A new chance
To enhance
And grow
To new heights
Full of new sights
New potential
That is essential
To my life
To the very essence of me
Though love did fade before over time
From the front of my mind
To the back like a distant memory
That left me feeling empty
It didn’t break me
It made me
Better.
