Setbacks

pexels-photo-29859Setbacks are
seeing
you
as imperfect
and perfect
at the same time
broken
polished
beautiful
shining
decayed
my image of you is painful
holding onto it
is painful
wishing
for other events
to have occurred
instead
of painful
setbacks are imagining
you
here
or that you were here
when I was there
and why wasn’t I here
when you were there
setbacks are your words
the ones I use to guide me
they remind me
of you
forever
of you
