By Troy Cabida

Here I am,
with all of the baggage on both hands,
watch me drop them down the cliff
one
by
one,
because even though I’m still
loving you so, I still
have to keep some of that love for me.

Time for introspection, in a land
where it’s become so needed, but so
neglected. I hope you understand.

No, I’m not saying goodbye, but perhaps
it’s your turn to do the reaching out this time.
Turns out being strong for two really is hard for one.
