Letdown

Posted on Dec 3, 2013 by in Legacy |

The dynamic has changed.

He has grown

and moved away.

No longer needing me

in quite the same way,

he seems different.

 

His eyes do not stare me down

wanting to use my body.

Thinking of me for food

and not love.

 

I feel unwanted,

yet relieved.

A loving urge

helped him let go

finally.

He has released me.

 

When I look at him,

he is older.

Past the stage of infancy,

he has given up his milk.

He realizes things will change,

and they must.

We can only move ahead

and never go back.
