To The One That Got Away
Who are you?
You absolutely do not exist.
Because I envision love so differently now.
I don’t chase after it.
I don’t run after it.
I don’t beg for it.
I don’t writhe around in pain because of it.
I don’t dim my shine to fuel it.
I don’t have to die so it can live.
What is mine – wants me.
What is mine – wants to be mine.
And that…that is so beautiful.
And I am deserving of nothing short of delicious.
There was a time I thought of a “you”.
I would’ve written sonnets and soliloquies
as though you existed.
But I honestly cannot see a face.
There is no longing.
No woulda, coulda, shoulda.
No what if.
You’re not invisible
You’re not a ghost.
You could not have possibly gotten away…
For you never belonged here.
