I just had to forgive,
there was no other way around it.
I’m not talking about forgiveness
in the sense that you wish them well,
move on and never speak again.
I mean truly forgiving..
looking both at them and at myself
not feel one single ounce
of resentment, of ache, of regret.
go out again with them
have them on you like a stained
dress and not feeling
ashamed of wearing it
