Growing Up

img_3670Something is different.
I can hardly speak
Over the
Tremendous sound of this
Quivering, invisible
Distance.
My bones are
Stronger and
My hair is
Longer and my
Heart is
Wiser but
I’m still having trouble
Remembering how to
Breathe.
Something is different.
Did I get
Left behind
Again?
Or did I move
Forward
Without
You?
Something is different.
Is it you?
Or is it
Me?

– m.m.p.
