I know you don’t love her

That’s why you come here

Alone, finding me again

I have what you need


You ask me how long

For me to later realize

How far you have to go

Before you really know her


You could barely stand a day

Without me, always chasing

Now you leave her behind

Barely swelling with child


Do you understand what she feels

Married, impregnated, alone

All with no discussion

Not bonding a lifelong companion


Yet here we are, axis centered

You’ve come home and smiled again

I see behind those eyes

That longing you bury, belonging


We’re side by side again

Guarded, not together but united

Hearts ticking as one

returning to my place you call home
