(no subject)

i know you’ll never understand
the reasons for my departure
many men haven’t in
the recent record of
these past three years

i left because i wasn’t me
and i never would be with you
there’s no accounting for where i went
or why i would never return
just know that i wouldn’t have

and, having already gone missing
for ten long years, i hope
you’ll excuse me if i can’t (won’t) disappear again

i’m going to run
and write poetry
and sing songs
and attempt to decipher
a method for
revealing my imperfections
instead of varnishing
over the cracks
