It’s Not About You

I don’t want to miss you — and I won’t.
It’s the park, bumpy lanes all the way to the top,
and the silence which squeezes my heart.
It has nothing to do with you —
I will just miss that park.

I don’t want to tell you goodbye — and I won’t.
It’s only the wind which has been blowing so strong;
now I have dust in my eyes — and it hurts.
It’s not about you —
my eyes are red from the storm.

I don’t care if we’d never meet —
I don’t care for now and I won’t;
once I am out of this trap which I have been calling a home —
a tangle of memories and hopes I could never let go —
once I am out of this place, I won’t care at all.

It’s the alleys we have walked,
the words you have said,
the kisses you gave me,
and the secrets we have kept;

but sure,
you have nothing to do with the tears in my eyes,
so walk away,
and let me say “sorry” to my favorite park.
