his reason for moving

 abandoning what he held dear 
(because it would not hold him back) 
 he gave it up and moved out here 
 to occupy a different shack 

 than that he'd lived in all these years 
 of yearning for somebody who 
 loved him, if not quite like the sun, 
 a bit more like the rainclouds do
