The “Ex” Box

Compartmentalization; if only it were so easy.

There are little places
I allow you to persist.
Designated spaces
I choose to not resist.

I have kept mementos
in a pre-selected box;
Little sentimentals
Kept away from view and locked.

Inside that box you’ll see,
What I shared with those before.
The tickets to the movies and
The frog, the glass, and more.

But your presence is a pox
As it spreads unto the rough.
I’ve given you that box,
Is that really not enough?

  1. Loved it. Beautiful. It has such a nice rhythm and pace. Great job!
