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

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
