Of comfort

1

You tried

You take

Comfort

In knowing

That

You tried

Questions

Always remain

Just the same

2

Under the cover

Of a laundry-warmed

Blanket

You are

Missing it

For when

It wasn’t there

This is how

Enjoyment

Can be

3

With you I felt

Things about myself

Both amazing

& like I could never

Ever even be like

Just regular

About anything

Again

& then

Messiness

Preceding

Some complete

Retopia

4

The cats were mostly at peace in the evenings. They enjoyed sleeping to television sounds.

5

I think it was hard for her, that not being believed part. It’s just how it is. It happens so often like that. & yet it’s always difficult to accept.

A perennial disjuncture.

6

Only the people who believe are of significance in your life when it comes to these things, they said.

This is very true. You remind yourself to focus on the people who love you. They know & they believe. & that’s all you need.

7

You stop fighting until you can’t. & then you fight some more until you can’t again anymore. & yet you make it to the end.

You break & bend.

Then everything that needs to, starts to make sense again.

& what doesn’t, now, it all makes you laugh.
