    Stealing you back…………..The beginning…….

    When I thought of stealing you back……….
    My first thought was of, taking back whats mine.
    Then I realize, how separation and time
    Made you not mine…….

    I mean…. I strummed up in my head
    That all the while you still belonged to me
    That no matter the milelage or mental distance
    You would always be dear to me….

    But…. Reality is Reality
    So in facing the truth
    I realized two things…
    What was once mine………..
    Was not mine anymore…
    That what was mine, now belonged to life…….

    I then realized that………..
    That just because you weren’t mine
    Didn’t take anything away from me
    I mean you, better yet my picture of us

    So……………………
    In swallowing TRUTH(Truth, like..not the picture I created in my mind)
    Which is sometimes hard to do….
    I’d have to get back to life…
    Just so I could get back to you…..

    Stepping back for a second
    Refocusing
    Redirecting
    Really……….Regrouping my thoughts
    Breathing for a seconding…..
    Calculating reason for my loss…..

    Lack of this, Lack of that
    Many things that don’t have to be said
    To much hurt, so much pain…
    I now lay in what I’ve made,
    Loneliness as my bed………..

    Which, ironically was bad, but good
    When living without, your realized what it takes
    When living alone, revaluating your mistakes
    A hard lesson to learn, but it’s a start……..
    To Be Continued…………………………..

    Life doesn't always give second chances, so when it does, seize the moment. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Great to read you again poet.
