the loner.

i have mastered the art
of packing up little fragments of my life
and being finished with them.
i guess the amount of loss and heartbreak
has somehow made me appear less compassionate
when all it really signifies is that i’m good at compartmentalizing
what is a priority
and what i can let go of.
so don’t be sad if you see me walking alone
and don’t think i’m not OK with this loneliness
because it’s not really loneliness i feel.
i like the solitude
and should you choose to walk alongside me,
don’t be concerned with the silence
since small talk was never my thing.
and i don’t expect you to stick around very long.
people have a way of dissolving into past memories
in order for new ones to take their place.
