as if grief had never hollowed out my heart,
caverns echoing with the memory of a laugh,

as if despair had never stolen my voice
until love whispered in my ear

and I knew what mattered,
to speak

of knowing: there are things
you will decide to protect yourself from,

pain
you must never relive,

and some you must live
and live again,

no matter the cost
who might have made the leap
we talked, too late, of making

which I live now
not as a leap
but a succession of brief, amazing movements

each one making possible the next

- Adrienne Rich

This...I've read many pieces on this site that have gotten a Daily Deviation (congrats by the way) But this has to be the most incredibly moving one yet. It's simple yet heart wrenching. Definitely on of the best I've read :) Well done! Really well done :) :heart:
