Mama, I said
there are skeletons under my bed dressed in decade-old mistakes
and apologies dripping from my fingers like honey
the worst things I’ve ever done
are the things I’ve let other people do to me
and the past is a mirror I can’t bear to look into
but it won’t let me ignore it Mama it won’t go away
it hums inside my bones every single day
and all I want to do is slip into my 15-year old self’s bed
and kiss her eyelids and tell her I’m sorry

Mama I’m sorry
how do you change something that’s already happened Mama
I know you didn’t ask for a daughter like this
but I don’t know any other way to be
Mama how do I make it stop
the past is the dictionary definition of regret sleeping beside me every night
Mama how do I make it quiet
I’m so sorry to myself Mama I’m so sorry for what I let happen to her I’m so sorry I’m so sorry

Baby, she says
I don’t know how you expect to move forward dragging this weight behind you
and if forgiving yourself seems out of reach
just think of the past strapped across your back for the rest of your life
how heavy it is, how loud
the past is greedy, baby
it will steal your future if you let it
but I know you had more in mind for your life
so take the deepest breath you know how
and thank yourself, for who you are now
and forgive yourself, for who you were then

It is always easier
To write about
Broken things
And falling
And losing yourself.
But it is important
To write about
Life and love
And sugar-highs
And nights you’ll forget
And faces you won’t
And any time
Your heartbeat
Is louder
Than the words
That make you cry.
Don’t let your writing
Let you forget
That sometimes,
Just sometimes
Just for a fraction of a moment,
You feel like you can
Dance on thunder clouds
And live to tell the tale.

escalators are better than elevators because when escalators break they turn into stairs but when elevators break they turn into vertical coffins
