raw and pure

why do we have to hold onto things? 
why can’t we have them as they are,
in the moment? 
raw and pure. 

we parted ways with love
not a romantic everlasting love 
but a love nonetheless 

I’d cry happy tears whenever I thought of you,
whenever I think of you.

and everyone always asks me 
why I never sought you out 
why didn’t we just try?

oh, but why can’t I have the moment for what it is?
what it was?
raw and pure.

I left with a full heart
and my heart is still full
we knew we weren’t a lifelong partnership 
so why would we ruin what we had
those moments we shared?
