i find reflections of my lost soul
in the pieces of fragmented memories
bringing me closer to who i was
and pulling me in directions of love and anticipation.
i find pieces of my heart
hiding in each person i let into my life
and i collect them like gems
slowly polishing each one.
i find pieces of us
weaving in and out of each other
finding who we are
together and separately
because we’re both simultaneously weak and strong
when we’re together.
