the double-take

All this time

I’ve been stuck in the past

Unable to move

To undo, to unlove

.

Stay away they all said

And I did

And I did

And I did

And I did

But not because I wanted to…

.

Then another one gave me

some different advice

“You have to allow yourself to be human”

.

So I did

And I went

And I tried

And arrived

.

He wasn’t there.

.

He wasn’t there.

.

Had I knew

This whole time

He’d moved on

He’s moved on

.

I could’ve said

with all my heart

in all the shock

the fleeting rage

in all the peace

in all the ways

.

Good for you

to my soul

to my soul

Good for you.
