I’m not trying to pull you back,

Read between the lines and you’ll see.

That would mean I’m back there too,

Waiting for company.

I’m not trying to pull you back,

Not now, not this time, not at all.

I’m not trying to pull you back,

It’s about moving on and taking in and understanding the past.

I’m not trying to pull you back,

I’m creating and letting go and moving on and learning

and feeling and understanding and being and loving and hurting

I’m learning to listen not analyze.

I’m here…

moving, hoping.

I’m here.

Not pulling.

Not pushing.

Not proving.

Not consuming.

Not drowning.

Not flying.

Not waiting.

Not contemplating.

I’m here.

Surrounded by my hope.

I’m here.

Me.
