Writing & rewriting

I have written it out

In so many ways now

& still I don’t know

If I’ve gotten to

The essence of it

Or if that’s even possible

In this universe

So I keep writing about it

Keep re-writing about it

As things come to me

I realize that

We were we

& that while

There are so many

Tears to cry

About us

I wouldn’t be who
