Forgave, Again

my expansive vocabulary of utter forgiveness,
terrifies your fingers, widens your closed eyes
but it allows me to feel you again, a selfish thing
allows me to feel again, the colors of our intermingled lives

touching on the edges of our consciousness,
just enough to satisfy me, your wind blows by me,
I catch the scent of my burning hands,
at least I can feel them again, grasping solidity,

my hardened palms can take the torture
if it’s for you, I’ll take on the world without hesitation,
this is my sincere proclamation for my heart
will always be open to you, the best

and the worst thing that has ever happened to me,
is your departure, but my door stays open for you
and only you because no matter how many times
you step out, the words welcome remain

unstained by our history,
more than just memory and residue,
it is permanence even if you are not,
it is what I hold on to

when you are coming and

going.
