sometimes, we are not the correct fit
for another human being
and sometimes, we are beleaguered.
there are people in the world that are too angry
and sometimes you need the propinquity to want to move on
and it was this that I forgot
and it was this that I was burned
it does not mean you are broken
it does not mean either are
it simply means
we must move on
and I wish there wasn’t blame.
and I had hoped there would be mercy.
but no quarter would be given, flayed two days
left afloat and unarmed
the captain calling, ‘let go!’
and I didn’t know how –
but sometimes we are not the right person
and sometimes it’s just a bad fit.
but sometimes we can help people
and that makes it all worth it.
