passerby

we didn’t meet conventionally

on small town streets that lead back to each other conveniently

we weren’t next door neighbors who were always too close for comfort

we were just two people on a crowded street and somehow you bumped into me

i don’t think it was fate that brought us together

it was your two left feet and because you needed a reason to talk to me

you stuttered when you apologized

and for a moment i thought you might cry

i told you it was okay that i was fine

and that’s where our conversation should’ve ended

but you were very persistent

a bump turned into a nudge

and that nudge turned into a shove

a year down the line we were talking about love

convinced that the two of us had grown up

as if maturity is a destination we reach after years of seeking

unbeknownst to us, it’s not a place, it’s a thing

that constantly evolves as we make mistakes and find our place over and over again

i thought my place was a spot next to you

it never occurred to me that you might move

and when you did, you didn’t take me with you

you were just a passerby and you passed me by
