from just these thoughts

I don’t even understand the mixed messages I send.
I tell others to leave us be;
leave us alone.
At the same time
I care for them
and wish them well.
I don’t look for understanding,
although
I wish these others would understand.
Their acceptance without implied judgment
is what I hope for.

I don’t have a way to share this
because that door is closed;
and the window’s open
just a crack
so I can hear.

How come relationships have to be
as defined by one of the parties
and it is not accepted
that the relationship
is
permanently changed?

So many questions arise
from just these thoughts,
but the point is
I don’t offer answers.
