The Fire


It took me a moment

to find my calm.

I’m sorry, Babe.

I got lost along the way.

I tried so hard,

but there are things

in my past

that kept dragging me back

and I

didn’t know how to let go.

I was afraid

of the fire

that was in my way.

The thing that I had

to face,

the only escape,

was to go through it.

I’m here now,

almost through,

and I can see you

waiting for me

on the other side

for the rest of time.
