did you notice
on the night before
the night before last

when you stood
in the middle
of my path
and started walking
closer to me

that i was
backing away
from you

just like old times?

did you see me
staring down

keeping my eyes from yours?

i could feel you
straight through me

trying to convince me
over and over again

how wrong i was
how right you were

how people
just don't
such a thing

and i saw myself
backing away from you
(as i did
and a day ago)

it all comes down to this

not even knowing
your own strength

and i
what you do
with your power

over and over again

damn me for crossing you
and being fooled again

damn you for wanting me
to be the me
i never said i was

don't make up
my future
without even knowing
what i am now

i'll back away
and back away
once more

to retrace
my steps again
