Come and Go

cold hands
broken bands
ebbing sands
unfulfilled demands
why do we break up to make up?

it’s all so confusing
when intentions are not diffusing
why stay when you can go freely?
but why leave,
when you can stay eternally?

Side Note on the Misplaced Files: The Misplaced Files are poems, thoughts, rants, and musings that were written on pieces of paper, notebooks, napkins and textbooks from 1996 (freshman in high school) to around 2005 (fifth year in college). All rough, random and unedited – posted in varying chronology as an effort to preserve what might otherwise be lost in a fire or by the very act of my mom cleaning out the closets.
