Leave taking

Held in place by old karmic bonds
or so it seems.
Is it just old habits
that keep me here?

We play out roles
that once engrossed,
our conversations now no more
than scripted lines.

During pauses in the dialogue
I look beyond the window frame
and wonder
why am I still here?

Looking back I see your face is blank
as if you wonder the same thing.

I imagine
taking my leave,
quietly, politely yet resolutely.

I see myself
living some other life
in some other place

Some place where I am free
to be the me I am now
no longer a shadow of a former self

Any karmic debt we owed each other got paid out
years ago

I realise I am free
to go.
