Major Arcana XIII – The Death card

A new beginning

I feel like having a new beginning

to let go of the old and welcome the new.

But the old piles up in my closets

and hides between layers

of clothed memories of youth.

I want to let go of the old

and welcome the new

but

I would have to learn to walk again

I would have to

give away my keepsakes

and the recurrent dreams

of an old soulmate.

I want to let go of the old

and welcome the new

but the old knew me well

and the new

doesn’t even know how I exist.

I want to let go of the old

because the old grew gray hair

and couldn’t even walk.

Because at one point the eyes

shut like permanent crescent

moons

with no light.

I want to let go of the old

and welcome the new

so the old can be reborn

again

but how would I know

when and where to find

the last memory

the last gesture.

I want to let go of the old

but it hurts

and I’m lonely.
