As long as we live in a world with other options, choices, experiences, and people, there will always be a reason to leave. And he’s going to take it every single time.
In just 20 days, I will be graduating from college. When I flip my tassel from one side to the other, I will be closing the most vital chapter of my life thus far. But how do I say goodbye to somewhere?
You’re the sea, and I’m the land. While you will always be there to brush up against me and wash parts of me off the edge, you’ll never stay. You’ll never commit.
To be completely honest, I’m not ready yet. I’m not ready to pretend that seeing your name on my phone or in my inbox doesn’t make my heart flutter because you want to talk to me. That you want to see how I am.
Once you left you took a piece of me that I only shared with you. You made me realize you can’t build homes in people.
The delicate structure wasn’t suffice to hold us both
The neighbourhood is filled with such a meddling crowd
You’ll return home in love.
The voices in my head were gone.
They were replaced by your voice.
Your constant words of comfort,
Your voice that sung me to sleep.
“She left me for another woman.”
In this lifetime, though, we did do something beautiful; we were able to choose ourselves, which is the start to everything.
