January 18

She didn’t know how to stop waiting. She didn’t know how to stretch her wings and take on the wind, to stay afloat in an ocean so wide and deep or brace the dark skies and wild storms. She didn’t know how to give up on him whom she loved, take back a piece of herself that she gave him, or find love by finding herself.

She wished she did.

    I like how even though she doesn’t know how to leave, she still acknowledges that she has wings, so she can. I like to think she’s a breath away from trying.
