Whole

“It’s time I feel the moonlight and know
that in this moment, I am whole on my own.”

I see the full moon shining through the mist tonight. I see how it lights up the night like the air itself is a beacon. And I wonder if you see the same thing. Hope. I wonder if you can feel the charge infusing within my spirit. Empowerment. I wonder if you even care. But I already know the answer. It’s okay that you don’t. You were only meant to be temporary in this life of mine. You were meant to be a lesson, not an epic lifetime tale. I’m okay with that. Because this is the last time I will wonder about you. I’ve spent enough time comparing so much beauty to you. It’s time I feel the moonlight and know that in this moment, I am whole on my own.

I repeat,
I am whole
on my own.
