Not wanting
to be cruel,
but as life demands
taking my time
away from you,
things tend to be
cruel, and unjust
those things between
you and I, what we know
what we’ve known,
hard to explain
or, make excuses
but circumstances,
you know, dictate
how I, and how you
exist in this life,
and how we exist
away from each others

Away from what we know,
what we feel, what we think
what seems fair, what others know
how this life gives and takes away,
how we exist, in the memories of others
how we
want, and don’t want
being, not in control
being, not connected

Away from what we know….
