Ah, the road not taken. The Read Write Poem prompt today asked us to address something from our past we didn’t choose, and write about it.

Separate Paths

We were heading off
into the sunset together, you and I
when we unexpectedly got waylaid—
you went off in one direction
and I in another.

I wonder now sometimes,
like late at night
when I can’t sleep—
had we continued along
the same path together
would I have ended up
in a parallel place
to where I am now,
or somewhere else, altogether.

  1. You’ve expressed this sentiment, which I think we all at one time or another have shared, in such a peaceful, calm way. It’s very soothing…nicely done!
