Disappearing Act

Every beginning has been the same.
Every ending has been the same.

One minute you are there
and the next you disappear.

No explanation.
Not a single word.

Then 6 months down the road you show up
as if time stood still while you were away.

You play games.
You toy with my feelings and emotions.

One day we talk like there’s no tomorrow
but then tomorrow comes and there’s silence.

You’ve disappeared again.

I Can Live Without You

I used to be petrified
with just the mere thought of losing you.
Even if it was for my own good,
I did not want to say goodbye.

When you sprinted out the door
like you were in a race for your life,
I had to get myself back together.
I had to reclaim my happiness.
I had to stop pressing the snooze button.

“I can live without you”
that is what opened my eyes
