Love Looks Different Now

Maybe I don’t see you much anymore.

Maybe you said goodbye,

Or maybe I did.

Maybe we just took alternate routes

And never recalibrated back.

Maybe we hurt each other

By accident or something stupid.

Maybe you’ve found greener pastures,

And maybe I’ve put down roots.

Maybe when we are beside each other

We don’t know how to be together anymore.

Maybe you wonder if my love for you

Is boxed up, shipped out, or worse

-never was. Please,

Believe me when I say,

Just because love

Looks different now

Doesn’t mean

I love you any less.
