365 Days of Poetry: Day Three-Hundred and Twenty-Nine

even Merlin.
wanted to go home.
in the end.

a prison.
a curse.
but home.

the pull of.
formative memory.
great and powerful.

he was more.
like the Wizard of Oz.
than Baum intended.


I clear my phone of you.
I clear my life of you.
return to my books.
and my rest.
hoping it will be enough.
to forget.

I hurt everything.
I break it.
scared of needing anyone.
only to be left again.

the books do not make.
promises they can’t keep.
nor run from me.
when the pain makes everything.
too much.

I clear my life of you.
I break it.
have to heal alone.
have to cry alone.

the words don’t fail me.
they don’t lie.
forgiveness is a thing.
I have to give myself.
