Maybe

Artwork by YAOYAO MA VAN AS

I need relief from the weight of these feelings,
because I have carried their burden for far too long.
My heart is no longer strong enough 
to continue holding them all on its own. 

I have to set these words down on paper. 
My hope is that maybe, just maybe, 

if I write these emotions away, 
this ache my insides feel for you will finally fade. 

They are no longer welcome to stay.
What does that old adage say? 

Something about time healing all wounds. 
Then why does this hurt still have me so consumed?


Or could it be
that all these years hasn’t been long enough. 
that this old battered heart needs more time to toughen up.
Then maybe, just maybe, one day I’ll awake, 
and finally say that time did you away.
