Allow me to linger a little longer.
I’m locked in the shadows of our past.
I’m trying to be strong as my heart dissolves into ashes.
And as you dance without shame, can I find a path forward?
I believe I can.
When an end is truly a beginning, the mystery is solved.
With praise for established boundaries, I move.
I’ve no more need to dawdle.
Does that spotlight burn too bright?
