BPD Voices Project: When we Meet Again

When we meet again

by Melanie Carrillo

When we meet again you will say hello

I will hear goodbye.

When we meet again you will say I look lovely

I will hear I have gotten old.

When we meet again you will talk for hours about nothing

I will pretend every word I hear is deep and profound.

When we meet again you will say I love you

I will hear I promise to love you for a little while, on my terms, or not at all.

When we meet again I will know it is you who have gotten old

Know we have become nothing but absent minded words and false love.

So I leave saying

Until we meet again.

When we meet again, you will say it’s been too long

I will hear I have changed.

When we meet again, you will say how beautiful I am

I will hear you see things anew.

When we meet again you will ask me to talk for hours about nothing

I will hear every response from you as deep and profound.

When we meet again I will whisper I love you

You will hear I love you without conditions, expectations, or limits.

When we meet again you will see me not as the monster you created in your mind

But as a human with faults and struggles.

When we meet again you will be at a loss for words at the person I have become despite of you.

So you leave again with nothing to say but

Untill we meet again…
