“Asking for help”

Why didn’t he tell me the truth?

I don’t understand why he couldn’t just tell me that he needed help.

Why could he just have asked for help?

I don’t understand.

I would have helped him but he went another way.

He didn’t want to ask for help and I didn’t know.

I didn’t understand.

That he needed help.

I would have helped him.

But now it’s too late.

He’d gone.

He created his own way out of his troubles.

And out of this world.

“From another time”

She was from another time stuck in my time.

We met by chance one evening and she told me her story.

I didn’t believe her.

But when she showed me I was forced to accept it might be true.

She was stuck in my time.

I promised to help her and together we created a life for ourselves.

But behind our pretty life was the knowledge that she wanted to leave.

That she wanted to get back to her time.

And leave mine.

However, as the years passed I thought she was beginning to forget about where she came from and was accepting the life we were living together.

I thought she might stay with me in my time.

But as I woke one day without her in our bed I knew.

I knew that she’d gone back to her time.

And left mine.

Forever.

“The same”

We saw our old home and I was glad to see nothing had changed.

Everything was the same.

The same shops where still in the same places and the same drunks were still sitting outside the same liquor store.

Nothing had changed.

The town hadn’t changed.

We’d changed.

We were different people.

Not the boys who left.

But the town was still the same and we realized there was no future for us there anymore.

We’d seen the world.

What it had to offer.

The good and the bad.

And we knew our small hometown that hadn’t changed during the time we were away was no longer enough for us.

We were changed.

“The land we loved”

We saw what they had done to the land I loved and we wept because we knew there was nothing we could do to fix it.

They had destroyed our land while we were away.

While we were fighting to protect it.

Our houses, our streets. 

It was all gone.

Destroyed.

And there was nothing we could have done because we weren’t there.

We were away.

Fighting to keep this very thing from happening to our land.

“The traveler’s muse”

He was a traveler and I was stuck in one place.

The same place.

I could never leave.

But he had my heart and I had his and every time he came back it was like he’d never been away.

I could have lived like that.

I could have been happy like that.

Being away from him for long periods of time.

Had he come back when I needed him.

But he didn’t.

The world was his canvas and I was nothing more than his muse.

“Until she left”

I never knew how much she meant to me until she left.

Until I had wronged her so many times that she finally couldn’t take it anymore.

That’s when I found out how much she meant to me.

How much I cared about her.

Why couldn’t I have seen it earlier?

Why couldn’t I have seen how much she meant while she was still here?

While she was still with me.

“As he brought me down”

He used my own tactics against me and there was nothing I could do.

I didn’t see it coming and I never thought he would be capable of something like that.

Really, who would have thought he would ever be able to use any of the tactics I showed him?

I didn’t and I was the one who taught them to him.

So I was surprised when he used them against me but at the same time I couldn’t help but be proud as he brought me down.
