transitioning

By: Shelbi Henny

the tempting part
is velocity
the transition 
from us being apart
and you being a fool
synchronizing the 
vocabulary
rejoicing the 
discovery 
of transitioning to 
fluent 
motions that style
a tainted pastry dish
we hold stale fruit
acute
to caving in secrets 
that lay against your cheek
and rest your 
indifference
to transitioning 
sleeping alone
while you lay to 
scornful
promises
realizing that she 
will 
never be me
and I can no longer
hold you at night
that words like
replacement can not be I
and the grass was 
never green 
on the other side
yet you began to 
transition 
and we came to an 
ending 
by learning the 
meanings
