Ditched – a poem

Ditched.

Unceremoniously.

In the midst of a seven year itch.

Wore my “fuck you” face

To shield the tsunami inside.

It worked.

For a while.

Then my head said “no more”

Be more kind to yourself.

And stop setting yourself for a fall.

Did I listen to my head?

No. I did not.

My heart thought it knew better

To easily fall in love with others

But not with myself.

Then you caught me

And I really found myself

When I found you.
