Life sprouts from the cold, damp earth and
past hurts fade as the sun’s light skulks into morning
Constraint released, ignorance fueled by despair
leaving me behind
the wheel turns and the cycle begins anew
Love, addiction, desire lay unresolved
Buried in the corners of their mind
Whispered words trickle from the wall
the wheel turns and a chapter ends
not seek, but pull
glowing from inside, warming an empty chamber
one foot forward, a life to step into
Release is happiness, theirs
Forgiveness is happiness, yours
