CHOICE

If you walk out, don’t come back.

Don’t come back with an apology and roses.

Don’t come back with pity and regret,

And the desire to clear your conscience.

Don’t come back to fix broken memories

With words that inflict more damage

To a raw wound.

Because I plan to wait for the wound

To grow into a scar,

A tattoo to mark a new beginning.

Because leaving was your choice,

But healing was mine.
