I was thinking about you

And her

Your new life


And I smiled

Invited the jealousy in

I sat with her


We became friends

I made love to her

Shared a cup of hot chocolate


Until I discovered

She was not here

To knock me down


But to teach me

To abide

In my own gifts


And in an act of great love

I released her



And here I live

Hovered on the edge

Of freedom


To the point where I have forgotten

What brought me here

In the first place
