I just had a memory of something that never happened.

You will become
of all the women
you once were
before you rise
in your own skin.
You will swallow
before you taste
held within your own.
Carry yourselves like queens.
You are made of fire and passion
Water and cleverness
Earth and strength
Air and peace, and rage, and calm, and fury.
Stardust and mercury.
Carry yourself like a queen.
You who are complex and wondrous,
Now do you feel the crown on your head?
Can you feel the regal blood in your veins?
Power and control.
You can rule.
Whether your crown is a sweatshirt
Your kingdom is in your hands.
Give yourself the kingdom you deserve.
I stood staring at the tree from the shadows. It was an enormous oak, its trunk at least a hundred and twenty feet in diameter and a good two hundred feet tall. It would have to be, to shoulder the burden it carried. All I had to do was touch it, lay my hand on the trunk and, according to legend, I would forget. Forget it all. All the terrible things in my past, all the mistakes, all the pain and regret. Gone. I could start over. I could have a clean slate from which to reinvent myself and do things right. Of course, I would also lose all memory of everything good that ever happened as well. Occasions that meant something to me in a positive way. I would have to reinvent everything I loved, as well. If it really worked.
So I found myself standing and staring. I stood on the precipice of rushing over and making it all go away. The only thing that held me there, in the quiet dark,
death will dance
before I let go
of the love I have

Because I want to find this again later and read it
