An Open Letter to Someone Who Didn’t Know Better

Our bodies change every ten years
And it amazes me that who I am today is someone you’ve never met
Skin that’s clean of your touch
Hair that never captured your scent
Bones that no longer rive under the weight of atoms and sorrows
With each change I grow further from you
Stronger
Lovelier
More brilliant
Than who I was when you tried to drown me in your pain
