Poem: Ready, Set, Jump!


It is clear to me now.
This is a house, a place,
not a home.
There are not even
that many memories here
really,
comparatively.



Now that you have been
living here again
for awhile, a few weeks,
it is clear to me
on this evening when
all of you have gone again.

It is time to either
move on,
be a part of the new
story that is unfolding
there, far away
or stay here and
disappear
a little at a time.



The earth is true
wherever I am
and I need to be where
you are,
all of you who are
part of me are.


I have had enough of being
 alone.
