Healing

I wrote your name
in the palm of my hand
like a promise,
a secret only I could keep.

I balled my fists,
hiding a treasure,
bringing you closer to my heart
whenever I clutched my aching chest

And your name slipped
through my fingers like trickling water,
seeped into my skin.
Healing.

Now I’ll unclench my fists
like blooming flower
as your name
beckons spring.
