Man whispering in a woman's ear. image from

Moving on, my heart has.

I had you for a moment

But eternity stretches itself in front of me.

I oscillate between sadness and joy.

You had me, my heart, mind, everything.

Now you don’t,

Maybe you never did,

Maybe it was my fantasy,

That I belonged to you.

I take myself back,

You no longer own me,

I belong totally to me.

I have finally emerged from my cocoon of pain,

A butterfly,

Spreading my wings, on the winds of love,

May they take me where they may.

I am ready for love,

May it find me at the right time.
