I imagine a purgatory for all the people I’ve loved,

A place where they stay just as I remember them

Before they quit my life.

I was never good at farewells,

So, I know I’ll join them one day

And shock them more than they’ve ever shocked me

For they’ll have stayed just as they are

But I’ll have changed,

A woman to rejoice

In someone else’s disappointment.
