Remembering You

I’ve been thinking a lot about you lately

not in a sad way,

happy way,

or mad way,

but in a way of remembrance.

I can’t remember all the good

and I certainly don’t remember all the bad.

All I remember is that I was with you…

not what we had.

As I step into the start of the newest version of myself

I look back and think about how

I didn’t miss you,

I just missed the familiarity of you.

Now all I want is nothing familiar.

All I want is me

and the unknown.
