Three paths, one truth poem

Three paths, one truth

You dried out
I forgot it was my duty
thought we’d share
imagined the mutual future
not the instant rupture

You overflowed
because I played
thought we both saw it
imagined you physical
not the current digital

You seemed happy
shared it with me
thought we’d swim forever without drowning
imagined we’d appreciate the beauty of the moment
not worry about an unprecedented dissonant

Author’s note:

‘Three paths, one truth’ is a poem about overthinking and being unsure how to go about a new relationship. Should you go fast, go slow, is it mutual, is it only one person in it?
