alive

you don’t know
what you need
until
it finally arrives
like a dagger
poised to strike
it isn’t until
the plunge
that it is truly
alive

the things given up
can be
the most fulfilling
when they arrive
from out of nowhere
to fill
all the gaps
leaving
a sense of contentment
where only ache
once lived
