Come Back!

Poem By Deva De Silva

The splinters of our relationship are still evident as the new day dawns
But so are the sparks of a life after us
Alone? Maybe.
But definitely not lonelier than the mismatch that we were.
Do I feel loss, or just relief?
A strange blend, maybe, of freedom and grief?
But why hold on to a twig that will never become a root?
Why waste time when there is so little of it?
I wish us both well - whatever life may bring
And I thank you for being in my life - when it still made sense….
