No, I don’t want to talk about it yet. I
don’t know which of these words I could
say to make sense — some thoughts can give
a girl such nightmares, and scatter away
all the good from the coffee and sun of this
morning. I do know this — my sensitive heart
is shifting, in these hours of weariness. I’ll leave
it to itself – to refold the map and choose the path it
wants to take. My feet will find their way. So, in
case you’re thinking you should worry — the
truth is, there’s no reason. I know I’m not lost
for long. I’ll find my compass in this confusion, and
let it point me north — keep going until I’m found.
