Autumn Breeze

Because it hurts too much to walk away.

If there was ever a line,

it was crossed a long time ago.

We fight because we love,

because we want to feel closer,

to feel loved.

We fight to know we care,

but we destroy ourselves in the process.

Learning to love without barriers isn’t easy.

We tear them down just to build them back up.

Two steps forward, one step back.

Maybe one day,

we’ll laugh about it all,

the pain we’ve caused,

the hurt,

the blame.

and it will all be a fleeting thought,

like an autumn breeze blowing leaves through the crisp air,

reminding us of all we’ve been through,

of who we are,

and we’ll smile,

knowing we made it out alive.
