some kind of arrival

I got there
It took
so much longer
so much more effort
so much more everything
from me
than I ever thought
and when I look back
over my raggy shoulder
you are no longer here
you are no longer there
you needed it quicker
you needed it easier
you needed someone else
and that’s why
you are no longer here
its not that I miss you
except on that odd occasion
when the slant light hits the glass
sunwise on warmer autumn days
and I reminisce
it’d be good to share
with your impatience
dreams are not impossible
that though
for those like me
whose journeys twist into long nights
stranger turns
even if I lost you
on one of those side roads
I don’t need you here
