conclusion

You appeared
in my dreams
last night

and I

am not sure
why

Perhaps it was
my mind’s

final

letting go

of that time
I spent

in a world
so unfamiliar

an exploration
of another
kind of life

in which
you

were the leader

and I followed
brazenly

blissfully
willfully

ignoring the
ignored parts of me.

I think my dreams
were telling me

that I am ready
to stop
looking for
what I
never wanted

and tried
so hard
to.
