The Coat

A poem

People will tell you that time heals everything…

And you will keep pretending, nodding, trying to hide your tears.

The sadness of a loss slowly becomes a coat you wear and never take off.

Even in hot summers.

Because it is a coat that you received as a gift from someone you loved.

Someone important.

You will also wear this coat in stranger’s houses…

With newly met romantic interests…

That you will temporarily wish you can break their hearts just as yours is.

But before someone manages to take off your coat and see your soul naked…

You must do it first.

No one will touch your body if your soul isn’t ready…

Time does not heal the soul, but you do!

Go out, take it free, take a deep breath...

Do you feel the cold air filling you?

Do you feel free?

You took off the coat.
