your symbol

is the same character,

but upside down

and reversed,

spaced apart,

but facing each other.


we were

the same,

until you flipped

upside down on me,

and not in the way

i would crave the most.


you’re facing me,

with the same smirk

i painfully recognize,


going the opposite direction,

and spaced apart

just far enough,

i couldn’t reach for you

if even tried
