Tell me about the dream where we pull the bodies out of the lake
and dress them in warm clothes again.
How it was late, and no one could sleep, the horses running
until they forget that they are horses.
It's not like a tree where the roots have to end somewhere,
it's more like a song on a policeman's radio,
how we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the days
were bright red, and every time we kissed there was another apple
to slice into pieces.
Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it's noon, that means
we're inconsolable.
Tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us.
These, our bodies, possessed by light.
Tell me we'll never get used to it.

Recently, someone reached out for my hand in a friendship, when I was least
expecting it. It was much to my surprise mainly because we have had a rocky
relationship the past few years, due to a lack of communication between us
as well as her dating my ex and that being an all-time recipe for disaster.

This has brought a flood of past emotions and memories of a young, naive version of myself. A person I have fought for years to never become again. It is so easy to consume yourself in someone else and everything around you that you lose aspects of your identity; the things you used to love, passions and goals and dreams in a relationship. I finally feel I am at a point in my life where I can safely open up and look back on past regrets and mistakes and really take something useful away from it. I am a true believer of "you live & you learn".

I will never again be the girl to allow someone to be my priority while only being their option. I will never again allow my self respect and self worth to be stolen from me. I will never again allow someone to overshadow me, to be my voice, to control my thoughts/feelings/opinions. I will never again allow someone to change me into the person they want me to be, rather than accepting me for who I already am. I will never again settle for less than what I, now, know I am worth.

I am proud to look back and be able to be truly happy and comfortable in my own skin. It has not been an easy road, but it was a road that has made me the person I am today. Strong, beautiful, honest, independent, and most of all hopeful.

And that is something no one can ever take away from me again.
