found yourself

alone

&

no longer

scrutinized or

criticized or

made to feel

guilty or

made to stay

up late worrying

where the other

was or

made to worry

about a so-called

“future” or

made to

compromise one’s

own dreams or

made to share

everything & get

told that there is

never enough or

made jealous by

the flirtings with

others or

ridiculed for

“not trusting”

or forced to fill

oneself with the

beliefs & pointless

traditions of the

other or

forced to mingle

with the family &

friends of the

other or

found to need what

one had never

needed before

this

person

came

in

to

carve

a

place

for

themselves

inside

you.
