I woke up and it was spring
And I was waiting for  
My life to set in;

Like waiting for a drug to hit.

I was living behind the time I spent;
I was living aside from
Something I missed.

Wondering, “How many times 
Do I have to die
To get it right?”

I’m not sorry
That I left you to return to myself.

While you were away, there was somebody else.

I couldn’t be alone long enough to feel;
I couldn’t stop opening long enough to heal.

I’m not sorry
For the bridges that I burned,
The heads that I turned
When I went up in the flame.

I couldn’t remember your name.

I’m not sorry
For waking up with someone else today;

I’ve hurt so long that it doesn’t take.

I open up the wound they gave—

I’d bleed to death if I were free;

I was tired of them telling me who I was supposed to be.

I’m not sorry for going back
For my body

When I wasn’t sure if it was me.

    I resonate with this so much... This is so beautifully written and expressed, I absolutely love it. I've been there so to read it through your poem, every sentence, it was very touching. You said it perfectly. Thank you for sharing! Xx
