Can I trust myself to let go?
The girl in the mirror reflection says no.
Can I peel back the scars and tear at wounds of yesterday
and know that this time it will be alright.
You see, I can’t blame them, I must blame me,
cause I allowed this heartache to be.
I allowed them to walk all over me.
I wasn’t strong enough then to know
that boundaries should’ve been in place.
You and me.
A new story. A new book opens.
Turn the pages of love
one page at a time.
Thoughtfully, tenderly, erotically.
They say words cut.
They say words heal.
I know words in a woman leaning.
