incomparable in this moment,
came in and swept you off your feet.
providing a high
strong enough to erase,
all that came before in its place
several roots were dug up to make space.
oh, what have you done?
friendships and lovers rearranged,
i just pray you stay the same,
though only at your core
because we all deserve change.
but discern between
abandonment and boundaries
intoxication will only ease the pain for so long.
should you choose to play the fool
be not surprised at the severed ties
of those who willingly watered you.
when the access and tools no longer remain
please don't come asking where we went wrong.
stand on your desire
and that intention to write me out,
your neglect will cease to infect me with doubt
a love once beautiful and mutual
turned unrequited and unfamiliar.
i'm sorry to see you go,
but may you be blessed to find another.
