A Year Ago 0 516

A year ago
I was empty
I had ripped apart my seams until there was nothing left
A year ago
I was nothing
The girl that had once occupied this body was nowhere to be found
A year ago
I yearned for death
A year ago
I found it
A year ago
I died.

Today
I am full
So full of love I could barely breathe
Today
I am finding my way
What it is yet I don’t know
A year ago
I yearned for death
But today
I yearn to Live.
