621 Reminder [23 July 2004]

“Are you over it now?”
She asks her usual question.
I answer my usual
“Yes, I am.”
“Did it need to be said,
or was I wrong?”
I reply that yes
it needed to be said,
only the reasoning behind it
is slightly different.
It was meant as a reminder.
A jolt to the head
and the heart,
that near her
is not where I am meant to be.
My place is among the stars,
far from her reaching, grasping,
unknowingly hateful hands.
