3/18

Sister

Sometimes in my head, you’re still 13
a preteen with braces in my wedding photos
the last version of you I really knew
was still a child

We talked today for hours
probably the longest one-on-one
conversation we’ve ever had

We shared our fears
our anxieties
we shared advice
plans for the future
we shared hope
we shared love

Maybe for the first time
we shared ourselves

Somehow the miles
and years
between us
collapse

The thread between us is frayed
but we’re holding on
