There’s something about the way people leave

that makes you want to bottle who you are

and keep it safe from the world.

You have a brave face that only lets you rent it

for public appearances and old relationships

you plough the road of failing friendships

where awkwardness is an easy language.

And forgive everybody but yourself.

Forgive yourself for convincing yourself

you will never know a greater love;

for creating this architecture of doom

and living underneath its leaking truth

forgive yourself,

for there is overflowing love

lining up to engulf you.
