He will leave you

Leave your smile

Leave every bit of “us” behind

He will call another your name

And look at her just the same

He will leave the him you knew  

He will leave you wondering where he went

He’ll evolve into someone better or worse  

He might miss you or leave the memories of you cursed

When he does 

You’ll be forced to stare at you again

At your imperfections, your thoughts, your essence 

Left with the you you hated

After the clouds are taken away…you’ll be forced to look…at you 

At the demon or angel you created  

At your self love or self hatred  

At places untravelled, things unlearnt, broken pieces

He will leave you

And you and you will be together again.
