Getting over a relationship and the toxic memories you can only think about in hindsight. (A mirror of the poem I wrote called "Moved Away".)

These days I leave out my memories,

Of the days I bought with you

And how they were an expense I could not afford.

The silence played between us so softly

Which I remember now as deafening.

The words left unsaid could fill the pages of a book

That no one would ever dare read.


Countless nights ended driving you home shortly after the moon had rose;

I could not wait for the sun to rise the next day

And chase away the shadows hanging over us.


These days I live in a faraway town that usually sees the sun,

Instead free from clouds that sent rain and blossoms of lightning down upon us,

With warm people that fill my heart with a kindness I’ve missed;

Like the chill of your affections created a hole that others had to fix.


When I watch the sun give in to the horizon

Or when it crawls back after surviving the night,

I wonder who now occupies my space.
