Numbers: The Erasure

“three standard deviations”

i am the normal
to your standard deviation of 3.
i love your flirtations, yet
they trigger a lot of “unworthy” in me.

i fear your love,
your affection,
your adoration.
like water poured on rock,
all is lost to evaporation.

erasure

since before we separated,
parted in the night,
i’ve been trying to erase you.
all images removed from each
social media site.
wishing it were so easy
to do this in my mind.

in letting go of the good
and the bad memories,
i see now that i was
also working to erase me.
twenty years of my life
almost
down
the
drain.

now i do my best to
embrace it all, so i can
once again
embrace
the
all
that
i
long
to
realize
again.

  1. Great post Tiffany, I so enjoy seeing moments where you have breakthroughs☺️ I’m sure you have a lot of amazing memories. It is a shame to pretend like those never existed just to avoid the painful memories. It is all part of your beautiful and unique story😘

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
