Commitment

I couldn’t commit.
Kept my options open
knowing that some day
I would change;
my wants, my needs
unsated by another.

Please don’t commit to me.
Keep your options open.
Some day,
distracted by another,
a new ember
may spark your fire

Don’t make the same mistake.
A misplaced sense of loyalty
is not becoming.
Let us not be bitter,
wasted, while we wait
for a sweeter taste
of ‘The One’ we thought we were.

We sense our familiarity
growing contempt.
We wonder where our passion went.
Do not commit to me,
as I could not commit.
Kept my options open
so that I could love you.
