a return

I thought i never knew him

we weren’t close in that lets go fishing, football way

many years i struggled to be different from him

then found that unless i embraced my similarities

there was no difference to be had

and he’s gone now.

then one day it happened

somebody i thought i knew, loved, trusted

took all of that away

for him, she’d left two kids and empty home

a pile of debts, that she’d used to start

away, a new life.

we will never talk of this

never would, could

and that holding in is the better for it

not everything is there for the share

though i’m telling you life is but,

a slight return.
