Such Great Need of You

As it turns out, I do not have such great need of you
As would make sufferable to me the return
Of all the baggage that experience has shown
Comes inseparably with.

I do observe with regret, however, that since
I erred in this the first time around,
It appears that exactly one of us
Has learned from what transpired.
And here you are todayas before
Expecting to return to your place,
And by that, showing
That you are not the one.

So let us part ways until such time
As you may return with a new heart about you,
And having left the baggage where it belongs―
For I am now convinced that we here do not have
Any more need of it than you do yourself.
