Solitary

 

Solitary,

always been

anathema

to us.

Fading in

and out,

incongruous

with what

you used to say

you wanted.

 

Now,

you don’t say

anything at all.

It’s like

you realized

that’s you’ve

married a phantom,

someone who’s

not here

for very long.

 

I guess,

I should have told you,

but I’m not sure

I knew,

back in the beginning,

that I would be

a memory

haunting you.

 

I’d like to tell you

how sorry I am,

but the universe

has no remorse.

I’d like to think

we did everything

we could

to chart

this course.

 

Good-bye isn’t easy.

Wish I had the words

to get you through.

This life isn’t fair,

but sometimes

we can see the truth.

 

I am

solitary.

Long

gone

again.
