new tune

it’s the street names that set me off
the memories that are tied to them
if i headed in your direction
if i make the turn, i would break down
my heart would beat strongly
like the first time i met you
my stomach would turn and ache
i wouldn’t be able to stand beside you
anxiety would cut into my soul
so i head straight on
not letting the memories recollect
swirling in my mind
leaving your town
is the only thing that helps
the farther away i am
the calmer my soul becomes
my heart begins to beat again
to a new rhythm
in a new direction
at a new destination
to another
