It sang, and

Refused to be silenced.


It changed definitions

When I realized, stepping off that plane,

I left home in a city I barely knew


Months later – 


Words, Light as feathers

Flew me 3,000 miles away

To a man I had grown to love


It is strong 

When the space between us 

Feels like a weight on my chest


It is pain

During empty nights

And endings to Rom-Com movies


It is bliss 

    And soaring

When my heart races and slows


It is brave 

At the thought of one-way tickets

And the unknown
