I’ve been around
the world and I have
done my research

hoping to uncover a
reason to keep you –
and I’ve come up
empty, and ready

to walk away
at last.

I hear shouting
in the distance.

They have noticed
my absence as
I snuck away on
this quest
and they are
coming back
to reclaim me.

It’s a hard road
and so lonely

But it’s nice
to be back
on track.
And you let out a breath you didn’t know you were holding and you take a moment to recognize the thing you are letting go for what it truly is and then you let. it. go.
