A Temporary Solace

You remember that last pic we took

on the last day of school?

The pic in which you held my hand

like you’ll never let it go?

Things changed, I guess,

or was it you who changed?

Or was it me?

What did change between us?

So many questions float around

in my head,

keeping me awake all night,

tormenting me.

You said you didn’t want to stay,

but you still couldn’t stay away.

I pushed you away,

and yet, you came back to stay.

I let you be with me

only ’cause it’s comforting.

But all I keep thinking is

“How much time do I have

before you leave again?”

    The more things change, the more they stay the say but then again time brings change and change comes with time. We always want that security but at the same time we always wonder if we should let a good thing go because it seems to good to be true. That’s the stick around until solace is good syndrome, but you know the saying lovely….a glimpse is an impermanent thing. As soon as the eye opens, the best things are right in front of us.🌹
