love poems: emotional selectivity

i get it
everyone you’ve loved has left you
your deep eyes have seen the
dark shadows of death as they sweep
through corners of the bay
you steel yourself to those
who want to stay because you
have not met anyone who does not leave

people come and go
as do the sun and moon
this is life
circular moments

you are roaming the earth
to find the thing that is calling you
perhaps it is your soul asking
for your return
you have not written letters home and it misses you

know that as you roam
if with each step
you forget the cadence of my voice
i too will forget yours
but if i continue
to come to you in dreams
be assured that you
still haunt me, too
