the best way to transition
is to do it with kindness.
to allow yourself time
to accept the change that is occurring inside of you,
to turn your healing into love,
and give it to those who need it.
jumping back into romance
that is not really romance,
is not the answer to your problem, dear.
do not let strangers kiss your lips,
only for you to pull away from the foreign taste of their mouth,
only for you to feel bad about it in the morning.
