Celastrus Scandens (American Bittersweet)

For a time,
you die to see them
looking at the
person holding
the camera
how they used
to look at you.

Maybe you regret,
maybe you think back
to the good times,
wonder where
they went.

But eventually
maybe you learn to
be happy
with their happiness,
and that they became
the person
you saw in them
when you were
younger,
even if they’re
being that person
for someone
else.

At least it exists.
