I Thought You Meant

Oh,

I thought you meant:

That I should leave you alone,

Give you time to to think,

To just be.

I thought you meant:

That you would come back when you were ready;

Ready to communicate,

To express your concerns and your desires.

I thought you meant:

We would be okay;

That this was just a misstep that could be easily rectified,

Within a moment,

Or a series of moments.

I thought you meant

Something else.

Oh.
