This Being Human – A Bonus Poem 3/18/2021

This poem was inspired by this dVerse prompt but ended up not being very metaphorical.

This being human
is when I realized how hopeless I was in love,
staring at my girlfriend’s car parked next to another.
All the facts I knew, twisted into lies I told myself,
and now believed.

This being human
is when I knew I would only regret silence,
when I felt everything that needed to be said,
and spoke only goodbye.

This being human
is trying desperately to be brave
and overcome the fears that are uniquely ours,
these fears of being too human for others to accept.
