and the stifling, humid ones
that our relationship will adapt
when coming home is hard.
when giving up seems easy.
when sleeping single sounds serene.
when we’re not “us.”
when I’m nothing like the girl you fell for
or the one you married
or the one you dated last week.
when families interfered.
when miles separated us.
when God changed us.
when we were broke.
when I was broken.
when we dreamed different dreams.
