"You"

FREE WRITING

When my pen touches paper, I always write "you,"
This nebulous "you,"
No longer sure even "who."
Maybe the object of my affection,
Passion without direction,
Longing without intention.

Life just seems brighter with somebody to yearn for,
Something to burn for,
A being to adore;
But that is all "you" ever were to me, 
An interchangeable piece,
Conjured in my reverie.

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

After everything else,
and all that you said
Did you honestly think you could do this again?
Like we did for a while,
A tongue in a cheek,
A language we learned but forgot how to speak,

You've been stuck in a haze,
A pattern displayed,
By a life that we had but you let get away,
'Cause you held it too close and kept it inside,
A fire you want but you’d never ignite.

You were right

After everything...
