Good Day

It is a good day to let the feelings flow

As they will, unadulterated, without shame or restraint

With no fuck or fear given to how YOU would feel about them

Knowing all too well how you would

Dismiss – Distract – Deflect ~ Connive – Contort – Convince

Me (hell, everyone we know) that I AM not real 

And upon realizing you’ve lost that power

Slink away to wallow in the cowardice and shame

I will never again bear for you or shrink myself to accommodate

Yourself alone remains to delude that I AM the one who abandons and betrays

It is a good day to do the tedious work of gathering scraps of grace

The only place I find them in this chasm of separation I did not choose

Today…it is a very good day to be 2000 miles away
