“Moving On”

Show Text

out of nowhere,
during an ordinary day,
during an ordinary office break,
you discover that you feel better.
you smile, tentatively.
you look for the usual heaviness
in your heart–and, discover
that it isn’t there anymore.
you realize that you’re not gonna cry–
that you’re starting to move on;
and, that you’ve stopped
pining for him.
finally, you know you’re getting there–
that you can be strong;
and, that everything will be okay.
you can breathe again.
yes, he left you;
but, it isn’t the end
of the world.
