“Not So Far Away”

Written by Dania Akkawi

“For a second there, I thought I had lost the will to write…”

But you were toxic when you said you weren’t. You didn’t hear me when you said you would.

And now you’re gone and the heaviness was lifted.
Now the skies are clearer and my heart has calmed.

It’s good to know that it was not me that was at fault and it’s good to know that I’ve found myself again.

For a second there, I thought I had lost the will to write.
For a second there, I thought I had lost what meant the most to me.

It’s comforting to know that I have found my way back to someplace new, not so far off.

Sometimes you’d think it’s over when the line cuts but who would have thought that it could be a start.
