*Final piece for this () series of poems*
Benefits of tonal shifts
The pressure encapsulating my heart
Dispersed, harnessed and reversed
From a dark pigment to an everlasting glow.
If I am to continue, on this journey
Darkness volleyed my way …
Love is all I need strive to return
From my end of the court, to yours.
To be who I need to be,
I need to acknowledge; let go,
The phantom pain…
We were not meant to be
And that’s alright…
We embrace love in different ways
And hate you, I will not, instead
I will reflect on our triumphs;
Our cherished moments.
Unveiling my humanity, a rare sight to see
But, for you, I will
“You meant a lot to me
For real this time.
