It took a while
but he did well
he got in and you let him.

He taught your mind
your heart
and your body
to stay put.
Around him.
Or was it all you?

And now you have to unlearn him.

Unlearn his words
his touch
his smell
and his kisses.

Ripping yourself into pieces
or waging a war
or dipping yourself into fire
All of it seems relatively easier.
