À mon ami


I miss you
(without missing you);
lost chance
to explain,
though you will never
understand
my words
my mind
my heart.

Was it opportunity
or crisis
that made you walk away?
Too near the chasm.
Stall for time.
Do anything
but open up your soul
and question what’s inside.

Change hurts.

Now days grow long,
reminding me
of other summers’ fires,
and so my gripe is this:
We could’ve tamed
our memory,
shared a laugh,
(thank god that’s over),
but you turned your back
instead,
refused to see complexity
in me,
while I recognized
(with fond and knowing smile)
the contradiction
in you.

Bonne chance, mon ami.

I love the tone of this..gently knowing and definitely moving on and away..i think choosing the choice of language made it feel like a considered departure..c'est superb!

That turning of the back is painful. It's a kind of abdication. But like you said, change also hurts.
