your lingering presence

like water

lapping at my heels

being told who you are.

i pushed you

so hard

i ended up

falling

myself

quiet now.

my heart is speaking.

i didn’t have the faintest inkling that you were tying yourself into knots over me. months later, i would be the one bending over backwards for you, but by then you’d already unwound yourself and walked away.

i’m not sure

exactly

what kind of life

i’m looking for

but i’m hoping

i’ll know it

when i see it
