closure.

and finally i understand
after two years worth of living
why you left

i called you selfish
called you crude
called you names i always refused
to say out loud

but i understand now

i understand

you left me when i needed you most
because what i needed from you most was to be let go

so i could grow

so when i found the boy who loves me next, i’d be happy

i’d be free

but most importantly, i’d know when to leave

so thank you,
for teaching me

for knowing you were my stepping stone before i did

because i finally understand
after two years worth of living
and one year worth of loving
that i’m one too.
