To the Newly Single (For XXX)

I can tell you that it’s going to be hard

but one day you will wake up refreshed.

That may be a few weeks, months, years from now,

but you will wake up.

One day you will remember how to walk

after feeling locked to a chair,

he will not have to push you.

Your crutch will break, your posture renewed.

There will be nights when you dream of him

you will wake holding his ghost.

Do not kiss it.

Memories can’t do that.

They are a gallery

and one day you will forget to pay membership.

I can tell you that it’s going to be hard,

I can tell you it’s going to get better,

I can tell you we will be there for you

but this is your struggle,

make a rope ladder from our outreached arms

and get ready to climb.
