IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING

It was inevitable

The break-up

It was inevitable

Yes, there were signs

Red flags along the way

Things just were not right

Flashes of abandonment

Moments of invisibility

And quiet despair

Until that moment finally came

When good-bye became inevitable

The tears

Before revelation

No turning back

Let go

Had to accept

In this season

We would have to part ways

If I were to ever heal

Return to wholeness

Regain the strength to face my future

It was inevitable

Good-bye

A painful moment

Letting go of the cherished

The nurtured

And protected

Weeping

Good-bye

DIGNITY

Yep

DIGNITY

Released it from its power

Over me

And my sensitive sensibility

About how things look

About how I look

About bare nakedness

Underwear on the floor

Hair glued to side of head

Sleepy crust

In eye corners

A chin

That has decided to cultivate its own crop of whiskers

Eyebrows that now only grow in gray

Midnight sprints

Dark bedroom/bathroom

Catastrophe recipe

DIGNITY

No more power

Over shame

Nakedness

Bodily dysfunctions

People who have loved you

DIGNITY intact

Now know

You are

Human

After all

When they have to

Pick up all your stuff

I mean

All your stuff

Clean up all your stuff

Yep

All your stuff

When they realize

It is inevitable

Good-bye

DIGNITY

But

This is the moment

The inevitable moment

When you realize

DIGNITY

Notwithstanding

How Much

You are truly

LOVED

And that makes all the difference
