I opened the letter

With excitement and haste

To hear news of a love from the past,

But the voice that I heard

Through the silence of words

Brought the message of a need to go back.

My heart and my mind

Flew about like two birds

On a whimsical, radical chase,

But my reason pulled back

Like an apron of strings

To a protective and purified place.

To love him again

Would bring darkness and sin

And force me to face all my fears,

So I sit here instead

Hanging on to a thread

Whilst I drown in a pool full of tears.
