week one of my tomorrow

i’ve got to come back. to you. to me. i’ve been so lost. unable to find my words. unable to share the ones i replay in my head over and over as i tear apart every facet of me, myself and i. i’ve got to let go. even if he won’t let me. i’ve got to heal the ankle. even if i can’t heal the heart. there’s so much i could share. wounds and scars and fears and wonders. anger and manipulation and unexpected options. but i can’t bring myself to come out from where i retreated for comfort. it’s too much. all of it. even the good that’s come with the bad. it’s too much. the lyrics say “i’d rather hurt than feel nothing at all”. but me … i’m not so sure.

sunday i will start my weekly updates once again. with insult and injury there might not be many miles. there might not be many words. but i’ve got to start somewhere and routine is my safety net. in training, i’ve counted down. seventeen weeks til mickey … 16 weeks til mickey … until the race was run. but now, with nothing specific to train for i must learn to count up.

week one of the unknown … week two of the unknown … until someday i stop running from myself.

the finish line once a marathoner, always a marathoner
