whatever this was

I will never be your love
but –
in my other universe I was yours
and you were mine
Yet you hold on to me somehow
but please don’t take parts of me
if you don’t want the whole of me, darling
but you already did
and I let you

You got to me in a way
no one else did, and there’s
a depth to you that I recognize in myself
You still come around and I
wonder what it means
So much we touch on
but don’t hold with our hands
as we talk about the truth of things
blurred with laughter
and here we are as friends
but you still give me
– that look
and we both know
whatever this was
at least it was real
