You’ve chosen your path

I’ve been looking behind now

For far, far too long

At the choices I’ve made

Discern where I went wrong

 

Was it me, was it you?

Was it beyond our control?

Unencumbered, we embark

Toward a shiny new goal

 

My mind’s gone in circles

On a continuous loop

Senselessly replaying

When I need to regroup

 

The embrace of the sadness

Now loosens its grip

And I unhook all the tubes

Of the love-laden drip

 

Evicted from my dreams

No assumptions are made

You’ve chosen your path

Your resolve was unswayed

 

I had wanted the chance

To reconcile how you left

To say goodbye properly

To show that I was bereft
