Assumption

When I say “I believe in us,”

is it a make-believe?

Drive

When you came along
I stopped writing poetry
Because my words drive
The people I love away

You still left
Despite
My wordless days

And now I’ve come to learn
That it wasn’t the words
It wasn’t the poetry
It wasn’t my writing

It was me.
I drove them away.

I drove you away.
