Can’t Sleep Gotta Write

You were a sweet voice in the morning

A hand to hold when I felt lost

Laughter at midnight and an embrace that warmed me

Pirate teeth that you no longer wear

You were a friend and a lover

I held you close and you made the world a little less scary

Dear lost love. How are you doing? I’m doing well. I’m finding more meaning in my job. I’m connecting with my parents. I like how I look in the mirror. I have more tattoos and some interesting scars from my misadventures. I have a lot to tell you when I meet you again one day. I understand myself and what I need a lot more now. I’m not abandoning my sense of self as much anymore. I hope you’re finding yourself well. Life is good if you look for good things. I’m sure you know this already. Sleep tight tonight.
