Tell Tales - Poem by Wes Thompson

I've been practicing the speech
dressing my words up
to try and make it seem
more beautiful
to leave a better taste in my mouth
a better memory
to keep
because I've felt more alone
since we last talked
before you ran away
and I'm glad you're free
but I hope you were wrong
and I hope it's better
than we expected
