When you left your high place
before you landed hard on a hard place
did it feel like you were flying?
In those last moments,
did you at least have the sensation of flying away?
You broke your promise and
took more of my soul away with you
than anyone should take from anyone
I forgive you for all the ways
through the years
that you stole pieces of my soul
unlike the body
the soul can reinvent itself
becoming something new and
more radiant than what was stolen
