Favorite Quote:
I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn Monroe

Like a mantra,
The words seep through my head.
I repeat them outloud
To reassure us both:
I will be okay

Look me in the eyes;
Say it aloud:
We will be okay

Wrap your arms around me
To tell me you're right there:
Everyone who left
Because of them.

The tears begin to ebb.
I take full breaths that I now
I'm okay.
We're okay.
Like a mantra:
Everyone who left

Because of them.
