It - I

It has diminished now, it
Is merely one
Part of the rest of my
Life, one piece of the
Equation that fits to the
Last like the pieces of a
Jigsaw still being slotted
Together.  It speaks
Volumes, the experience, and
Shows that I must
Move on, be changed, and
Live life according to
More ancient principles not
Run myself to ground
And die crying.  No - it is
Smaller in my mind now,
Takes up less space as I
Face forward and re-
Learn how to breathe.
