fully herself

(Continued from “broken bit” after “when she left I got old”.)

and now she’s tasted
the single pomegranate
seed that she needs
to feel fully herself
and there’s no going back
to the way it was
for her, for me
the only thing left
is to accept her leaving
was inevitable
and realize this tale
is one I constantly retell
and try to learn
a new ending
