Deadline

The time finally came

when I needed to look away,

no longer captured

by your fertile garden.

Took my leave,

and I,

was never satisfied

with you,

or any other.

 

Couldn’t even satisfy myself.

Spent my whole life

reaching out to someone else.

Now,

I can’t tell

if this is the end,

or the beginning,

but every day

I think

it’s more likely the end.

 

Some say,

we’re gonna get what we deserve,

someday,

and I can’t say they’re wrong.

But,

I can’t say they’re right, either.

The day has finally come

for me

to make up my mind.
