really ready

we were friends
lingering around one another
thanks to familiarity
until your brother left
we became family after that
and it’d be a lie to say
that there as’t some hope
that you might be able
to take his place

but we’re further along now
like family becomes
not that you had much of a choice
you were left with a broken version of me
listlessly wandering
while you waited for me
to pick up the pieces
and think
finally
this:
I’m ready.
I’m really ready
to move on.
