[Poem] Your Apartment

(Another after- If You Ever Come Back poem.)

For now, a home is not in the belonging.
This studio apartment is not built for two, but you
You can have guests over. They make you remember
to turn the lights on, to wash the dishes
and make yourself dinner. At 3AM,
they will say their goodbyes over
the bottle of merlot you saved for a special occasion.
That’s when you decide

that every day you learn to live alone
is a special occasion. You
are discovering that love is not the only reason
to play some music,
turn the lights on,
change the sheets, and
open your windows;

That, by yourself,
you deserve to have fresh air.
