Lost And Mourning

“I gave myself permission to stop.
I gave myself permission to cry.”

Today, I gave myself permission to stop. I gave myself permission to cry. Because all those people I’ve lost deserve to be mourned.

Not for their benefit, but for mine.

Because they never deserved
a piece of my heart and soul,
but they took, nonetheless.
