Woman In The Mirror [POETRY]

Lately I’ve been spending some quality time

Slow walks

And quiet dinners with a soothing light jazz

Time to go on and on about lovers from the past

Promises to the future

And trying to find joy in the right now

I never knew how much enjoyment I got out of being alone

I never knew how much of my time I devoted to be at everyone’s beck and call

Devoted to their pain

Their joys

That I forgot what spending time with me felt like

I may be the best company I’ve ever had

No awkward stares

Shyness giggles

Or forced conversation

Just a light mood of going with the flow and allowing my imagination to take control

Allowing my pen and notebook to bond once again

This is my peace

My hearts fluttering

Welcome home
