Metanoia

I suppose I’ll forever be changed

I guess I’ll never forget

The image of your broad, strong shoulders

Turned away, as you departed.

 

I’ll never forget the relief

I felt as I exhaled the smog

You had contaminated my body with-

That was fleeing as you left.

 

I almost wish you had forgotten

All that I did for you

The life I unwillingly gave

To benefit your own.

 

Because you had a change of heart

You decided against letting me be

And that moment I remember so fondly

Meant nothing with your return.

 

But I will always hold that memory close

I’ll always cling to that feeling

The way my heart rested as you turned away

And the hope of a life without you.
