Sometimes you’re in the dark for so long
that you don’t even notice that the lights
are back on
and I didn’t realize how happy I was
until my best friend pointed it out
and I could’ve sworn I was bleeding
last night
but the scars are all 4 months faded
and my mouth tastes more like you
and less like metal
and maybe I’ve come back to life
and maybe I never died like I thought I did

Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest — thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.

I told her once I wasn’t good at anything. She told me survival is a talent.
