Legacy: Lady

Why is it that time can heal my wounds only to leave scars that

Exist in my head and not on my arms

Where I can see them.

I only wish I remembered this pain before it

Swelled up in my throat

And choked me.

I didn’t pick up the phone.

I  let it ring,

I told her she’d cried wolf too many times,

And that all the sheep had gone inside

So I no longer needed her to guard them.

“I’m alive, I just don’t want to talk to you right now.”

And if I’m lucky,

If I’m smart,

I’ll be alive tomorrow and feel the same way.

In times like this I always remember that you can love someone,

So deeply,

But you can also know that they aren’t good for you

And I think that’s where my pain comes from:

Letting go of someone

Something,

You’ve been so addicted to,

Dependent on,

In love with,

And knowing that for your own good

You can never see them again.
