Push Away

I have a character in a current work-in-progress who makes the observation that “sometimes when you push someone away, they actually go.”

It sparked a poem. Enjoy! (But, as always, don’t steal. Be cool.)

One day you’ll open those eyes and

I won’t be there.

One day you’ll come home famished but

There won’t be food.

One day you’ll need a listener

it won’t be me.

One day you’ll push me away and

I’ll really go.
