I will write your name over and over

until it does not hurt anymore

and if that takes a thousand pages

at least it will be over.

and I will forgive you someday

but first I have to forgive myself

and sure, I’ve learned to love myself

but it’s still fresh

it started when I left

    It might well feel like thousands of pages…

    and sometimes maybe you’ll surprise yourself how many times you can write it out of your system … just by living the words.

    But when you write pieces like this –

    that’s worth a few thousand pages of any name, right there.
