The Roads We Take

Wrote this poem on the flight from Beijing back to Vancouver. I also wrote another poem and a song and I watched Pitch Perfect 1 and 2 and I watched Inside Out (sobbed). It was a productive flight.

Where will the roads we take go

If we were meant for each other

Will we meet again?

Six months since you said goodbye

You told me, every month, you’d see me again

You took with you a gun,

thought it was loaded with blanks,

But I’m finding a hole in my heart

Every month gone is another bullet,

Ripping my capillaries

I can’t breathe because you were my air

Which road did you take?

The one less traveled?

The one bursting with life?

The one that lead you further away from me?

Leave me the gun

I want you to feel the same I did.

This time, I’ll be sure to load it

Your pain would be much worse

I’ll take the road less traveled

So if we meet again,

You’ll realize that the pain I caused you

Was because you caused me the same.
