i felt it most of the time,
why can you hear it?
i won’t take it for face value,
is that how you perceive it?
i threw out what i had,
does that make you miss it?
i can’t place it – the time it took for you to forget.
i don’t blame you.
it’s a true sentiment.
the lack of it.
just another summer gone.
just another year to learn.
but i don’t blame you.
i’ve got it under control.
i’ll run across you – when i find the time to.
stumble over my words, with fresh eyes.
but those are old wounds, they’ve healed.
in all fairness – i knew it after i stepped back.
i could see you – scared and tired.
soon it’ll just be the distant past.
let’s keep our thoughts in the future.
