It is still easy to move on after breakup
when you both have loved each other
in the same city, when you have lived together,
when it was never long distance.
Moving on is quite literal in these times.
All you’ve to do is one day, pack your bags,
book an airplane to a strange city,
with no return ticket in sight,
and let yourself sink in its newness.
But what do you do in a long distance breakup?
Where do you escape to, whom do you
escape from? You have been with yourself in love
more than with the one you love.
No matter where you go, whoever you meet,
how can you get rid of the memories of
you talking, walking, panting, pleading, loving, living
with and for the one you love? How can you ever
run away from yourself in love?
