Potential 10/04/2014

There’s a book I read a long time ago,
that said,
“Never fall in love with the potential of people,”
I used to always say
I wish I had met you at a different time
when you’d be the person you’re about to be,
and not the person you were then,
but I guess
that is neither here nor there,
that’s the thing about all the people
you meet in your life
and the invisible histories
you cannot erase
there is no such thing
as meeting again
for the first time
and yet the only proof we have
that the past is real
are things we can’t even see with our own eyes.
