You cannot

You cannot cross the same river twice

You cannot go back to change regrets

You cannot predict where tomorrow carries you

You cannot know then what you know now

You cannot sing an unwritten song

You cannot feel when you are numb

You cannot hear over the noise in your mind

You cannot see what’s right in front of you

You cannot fix what’s meant to break

You cannot heal without looking in the mirror

You cannot run from yourself

You cannot flee your past either

You cannot do what you can’t

But can you do

What you can?

Can you be you?

She

Is the breath under your wings
The sun in your eyes
The warmth in your heart
You held one another drowning

Until

You notice that her storm carried you away from friends and family
She burned your retinas with poison
The fire inside you breaks out violently

Still

After almost a decade

The wounds

Are bleeding
