growing up and away

moving away to new places

and losing what felt like a home,

only to recognize that it was always just a house.

some things stay the same

like the food i can get at the grocery store

and my dog sleeping in my bed,

but most of it doesn’t

and i don’t quite know how to grasp that sometimes.

i want transformation

and i want to grow,

but losing anything good in the process breaks my heart.

i see now that it is impossible not to.

that i have lost friends and loved ones

to distance that is physical or emotional.

you, and him and her.
