when alone

found yourself
alone 
&
no longer 
scrutinized or
criticized or
made to feel
guilty or
made to stay 
up late worrying
where the other
was or 
made to worry 
about a so-called
“future” or
made to 
compromise one’s
own dreams or
made to share 
everything & get
told that there is
never enough or
made jealous by
the flirtings with
others or
ridiculed for 
“not trusting”
or forced to fill
oneself with the
beliefs & pointless
traditions of the
other or 
forced to mingle
with the family &
friends of the
other or
found to need what
one had never
needed before
this
person 
came 
in
to
carve
a
place
for
themselves
inside
you.
