Reinventing the Mirror

I evade myself
To find someone better.
Perhaps in another,
Perhaps in a lie.



I will keep loving because
leads to loss, which
results in pain, which
ends in hope, which
brings me back to love.



The hope is gone but the love remains.
You are gone and do I remain?

I wish I knew that our last
moment together
was our last.
I would have been slower,
and I would have closed the door
before you could leave.

But then it ended.

I leave the door open, still
for the love to go
along with you.
