I figured I wasn’t important–
to her. I wondered if I’d ever hear
from her again, it had been so long
since she answered my last email.
People cross our paths–& stay awhile–
sometimes a long while. We keep
in contact with them for a reason.
That person is more compatible
than another you may choose.
So you stay around together for
No commitments are given–
at least overtly or verbally.
So it’s like life itself. It could
walk away, no questions asked–
you could die despite all your
objections to that reality
So we never know but sometimes
we come to (unconsciously, maybe)
expect people to stay around–
you or they don’t need to
“fire” their whole corral of
relationships because you
decided to be more solitary
& spend more time alone
with your one best friend who’s
definitely not going to walk
out on you–yourself!
Staying true to your authenticity
is sometimes all you can be
sure of having.
