You Tried To Change, Didn’t You

You tried to change, didn’t you?

“You tried to change, didn’t you?

Closed your mouth more tried to be softer, prettier,

less volatile, less awake, but even when sleeping you could feel

him travelling away from you in his dreams.

So what did you want to do love split his head open?

You can’t make homes out of human beings.

Someone should have already told you that

and if he wants to leave then let him leave.

You are terrifying and strange and beautiful.

Something not everyone knows how to love.”

― Warsan Shire
