A Song of Clean

Thanks for letting yourself back into my life. 


The beats of the music you sent me 

swing in my mind like a pendulum 

they envelop my mind, 

not yet my heart though. 

that's still healing from the time I ripped it up because I thought it was best for me to heal myself,

a new person


And I am , 

a new person I mean, but not in the way that

like, a break up would make me a new person 

I’m just the kind of person who realized her full potential


Your instrumentation that you brought me

came in to my life like the smooth sounds of Rhodes

ironing the edges out of a year

those edges haven't come back

and I want to thank you for that because we knew How good it was, and we had to be who we are

just two people


but Two people

not one, we are reaching in different directions equally 

like, in the way that a lovers knot comes undone

now we, as branches, can do what branches do 



so, Thank you for letting your self back in to my life

but for respecting  

who we became





who we Became 

who we will Become 

who we Are
