Dates pass for the ones I Don’t get


Let’s take a step back
And realize how much better things are between you and me
Without purple lights
That try to set up moods
That don’t exist.

Last month, when I was diagnosed with loving too hard
And you not at all,
I should’ve remembered that
These feelings might be real-
And everything that’s real
Never lasts.

How come waves always come back
To claim what they leave behind? Maybe one day
You think that I’ll come back
Like the kind of oceans newspapers write about,
How vengeful nature is,
And how it will always catch up to you before you can take two steps.
But the slave to nature that I am,
I still refuse to be a slave to you-
And like the warnings people get about nuclear radiation,
There’s no way to stop me from leaving
Once I’ve left.
