I Want to Soothe Her- a poem

I Want to Soothe Her
K.N. Lee

I want to soothe her
Hold her
And let her know
These tears will dry 
And the wind will blow
Toxic kisses
Leave such dark marks
But the sun sheds rays
That smooth out the scars
Such sobs are healing
Like the river flows
Such sobs are purging
Pleasing
And essential 
To letting him go 
Dark clouds fade quickly
There is no doubt
Breathe in 
Breathe him out
