Poem: Wasn’t

Everything was good,
but then I pulled back and everything wasn’t.
I had a great time and even smiled,
but on the inside, I really wasn’t.
I felt like I was moving on,
but then I looked at you and remembered I wasn’t.
I was resolved and I knew I deserved better,
I thought I was ready, but I just wasn’t.
I was strong and believed I was in control,
but in every encounter I wasn’t.
I had an epiphany and was sure I wanted this too,
but then you hugged me and then I wasn’t.
I admitted that I was unhappy with you,
but then we laughed together and I wasn’t.
I don’t know if I’ll ever be ready,
I know for today that I clearly wasn’t.
