Walking in after all these years

my heart still skipped a beat

this was our home until all

had to be abandoned

not by choice mind you

but by circumstance

 

Everything dust-covered

decorated in spider webs

and scattered leaves

But … on the piano to

my surprise was a lit

candelabra …

No…

It couldn’t be …

after all these years

after our forced separation

 

That candelabra on the

piano was his signature

a clue to me the awakening

was happening …

Ghosts…

Ghosts…

You showed up

out of the blue

today…

Uninvited…

Unannounced…

After months of

no contact…

Not a phone call…

email…

text…

And…

expected to waltz

right into my life

as though nothing

had happened…

as though you just

left yesterday and

had not been

gone for months

 

I am not the same

person you left…

ignored…

abandoned…

for months on end

You may or may not

be welcomed back

into my life

And…

if then…

Only on

MY TERMS…

Abandoned

Things have not

been as they should

for some time

Feelings on the

Edge…

No anger…

No arguments…

Nothing…

Emotions no longer felt

Like strangers in

the same space

Not speaking…

touching…

OR

acknowledging the other

Being abandoned

does not always

mean someone leaves

Often…

no one leaves

But…

Life itself has been

Abandoned
