We had a lovely dinner
Last night
And then decided
To walk over to Blue
I felt horribly uncomfortable
At a place which
Has almost defined my life
Since I arrived in Paradise
And it bothered me
And depressed me
Until I understood it
As I took my walk this morning
I am no longer the person I was
When I first arrived here
And no longer addicted to
Watching the hordes at play
I think I’ve outgrown the place
And not because of my age
But because of no longer needing
To troll among the lost
And it is clearly a sign
Of a new period of growth for me
As I continue on this path
Of learning to live again
