12 Days Until the New Year: Day 5-Places

By: Angelica Freyre

we were always together
whether it was in the coffee shop
or at the park in an impromptu photo-op.
but then you left, left me wishing for a forever.

desperate, angry, and lonely.
how could you do this to me?
i thought i could never forgive you; a denial spree.
i feel myself losing it slowly.

But then, I remember.
It wasn’t your fault you left.
I know you couldn’t help it. It’s okay.
I get it, you had to go away.
Grief is the only club I am a permanent member.

Now I walk through the coffee shops and I don’t cry,
Now I take pictures in the park, memories
Of us together, are now bittersweet.
