throw a penny

I learned how to be with someone new 
who didn’t talk or walk or even look like you 
I tried to make sense of what it meant 
said goodbye to years and hopes spent 

throw a penny over your shoulder 
don’t look back until you’re older 
if you think you might regret it 
you’re allowed to feel and end it

One thought on “throw a penny
