After

How is it so easy?
After I’ve given the best of me
After I’ve waited and accepted impossible things
After I drank my own tears
While I strained to trust
And learned to keep my eyes open
How is an apology as careless as breathing?
How long ago did you decide you were leaving?
Pardon me, naive and believing
But I am not myself and I haven’t been
And i am not these putrid rags I am standing in
It’s what’s beneath
The part you well know
The secret part like buried gold
How then is it easy to let go?
