Barn Door [this is about my ex-wife]

3-21-17, Junction, TX

I cried today
writing this.
That’s a lie
I sobbed
a kind young man
in the parking lot
wanted to know if I was ok.
I was thinking about
when we met.
I looked at you
and saw someone beautiful.
I still do.
But I got inescapably weary
of losing that battle
to your insecurity,
of knowing you
were sufficient for your day
only to come home
and find you defeated.
I wished to carry you
but my heart can’t
ache like that anymore;
I need living.
I just wish for you
to realize your future
to be powerful, to be as radiant
as you are; because,
unknown to yourself
it already is.
