this is the last
order of business
I had to take care of
to clean out
the old life
I am sorry if I hurt you
it is time to go
for both of us.

I had to level
the playing field
I have placed people
and situations
on impossible
my whole life
and then damned them
when they fell short
of what I expected them to be

Well, I no longer deal
in pedestals,
or high hopes
the ground is leveled
it feels good beneath
our feet
and I can look you in the face
for once.

I will never place you
on lofty heights
away from me
where you can fall
even if I am the cause
of that fall
in my head

we, after all
are all human
