Today I forgave my beloved 
for whatever harm ever 
he has done me. 
All of me forgave
all of him. 
Forgiveness beats 
against my heart like the pump 
in our old aquarium,
I feel the tickle of little fins 
swim through me. 
As if no harm had ever 
been done 
or its affects now long gone, 
those old harms buried 
in the muck, gray and bloated 
at the bottom of our lives, 

here and there just flotsam.
