departure.

old names.       dates.

photos.       facial expressions

indicating something other

than you

these are my suitcases

and though you       are

next to me and we        are

we       are holding        our hands

we       are holding

      those suitcases

because they are my

battle wounds

and i like how you

don’t know

where to find them

because you aren’t looking

for my pain

or my old dreams

or my old habits

but you know

they exist

and that’s what i needed

from you

and the thought

of you –the thought

of you…

i’m freeing myself
