moved without moving.

I still had all my belongings packed up in boxes
waiting for the moment when I got to load them into my car and drive away

I haven’t unpacked them yet because a part of me
still hopes this isn’t the end.
because we were going to move

escape. together.

just yesterday you were saying how nothing could ever stand in the way between us.
that we were the end.
we were going to reach
the end.

yet here I am.
packed without a ride.

a leave date. a destination.

and as I sit here
tearing off the tape that sealed our forever
I wonder if you alone were the trip I had to take
to realize

I’m home.
