Same: Farewell Looms Inevitably

same - Spectre of the Brocken

I find myself with the ghosts of yesteryear. 

Haunting my peripheral. 

Across any distance, no matter your company, 

I’ll retread my worn path to your heart. 

Regardless of your location,

Perhaps words misspoken in a slur? 

Whatever the cause,

you gave up on me. 

The conclusion is inevitable.

Realization awakes…
