T R U T H

it’s not bad if i don’t want you in my life
it’s not bad if we don’t lay together
or lie together.

it’s not bad if i don’t want to be in your life
to recognize the truth in myself
is not the same truth in you.

it’s not bad if i don’t want to tie my life
to the you you’d like to be
because that ambition is a goal
and not a truth of who you are
or what your life has been.

it’s not bad that recognizing
that what i am
and what you are or want to be
don’t have to meld like magic
because i’m trying to save us
from something so tragic.
