Dolly

Me and my dolly
Faint echoes
In twilight
Heads on pillows

Seems
Like
Distant
Memories

Why now
Why those
Words
Context
Missing

Only
Feelings

Felt like
Love
Appreciation
Forward
Movement

Simultaneously
Felt like
Scorn
Rejection

Was this
The first
Instance
Of being
Squelched
By another

Buried
Memories
Rarely
Reveal
Full clarity
Immediately

Yet
Solidify
I am
Here
I am
On my track

I am
Atira
Moving
Forward

I accept
This
Another
Step
Another
Element

MY
Healing
Greater than
Anything else
Anyone else
Might provide

Healing
Often
Chaotic
Until
The worst
Has passed

Another's
Perceptions
No longer
Deter
My knowing

I am
Here
I am
Healing

I have
Healed
More than
Any other
Knows

MY healing
Is
MY gift
To
Myself

My choice
My freedom
To BE
Here
As
Atira

I am
Walking
Breathing
Miracle
In action

I am
ME
Here
