i ran to the rivers
and disappeared to the woods
suddenly i was out of breath
gasping for air
as the crickets watched me
the clouds looked down at me
in shock
as my heart pounded
against its cage
beating, pounding pressure
and the trees whispered my secret back to me
and i discovered my error
because every time you messed up
i put pressure on myself.
i blamed myself for your mistakes.
but love, they weren't my burden to bear
and so i'm cutting them loose
and letting go of the strain.
i forgot you in the process
but believe me,
it was a purposeful kind of forgetting.
