Music Played Backwards

Seeing you now
After all this time
And all that’s passed between us
Is like listening
To music played backwards;
Familiar, but difficult to comprehend.
I’m trying so hard
To understand
What has changed
And how I can fix it.
My ears are desperate to adjust
To a confusing sound,
Unpleasant and strange.
Yet, so immediately,
Like the flick of a switch,
It’s beautiful again.
As easily as music plays,
I switch off your song
And play my own.
