You choose to keep yourself apart,
In a sea of turbulence and despair,
Claiming a struggle you find comfort in,
Refusing to let anyone near,
Always at arm’s reach and never close enough to your heart,
All while claiming to love me,
Yet make zero to little action to affirm said love,
You choose isolation and distance, which keeps you safe,
But where does it leave me?
What do I do with the wreckage your solace has left of my heart?
How do I heal when like a ripped bandage on a burn, you reappear again?
But with every sunset’s end that you remain on your self-imposed island,
It will become permanent and you will find yourself alone,
Grieving and brewing over the love you took for granted.
December 2022- R1
