Closing the Door

For the last time

you have caused me pain

abused my trust

stolen my love.


No matter what I say

how I ask

my words are in vain.

Nothing I say can matter

change will not come.


Try as you might

to win my forgiveness

say the right things

make promises abound

and plead for second chances,

there is nothing to forgive.

No hate or anger.

I know you well

seen your every move

grown weary of its sameness.


My love has receded

like the tide with time

forever changed.


Too tired to fight

for what I no longer want.

Finally full circle

its me who can not bother

to muster the energy to care

or pick up the phone.


While you were busy playing the game

vying for my attention

trying to arouse my anger,

I simply walked away

and closed the door.

Well, I've felt this way in the past; and followed these steps..self preservation, self respect, autonomy, individuality, freedom....gained through these courageous words. All applicable UPs, Truth! And, this is true..for now and always.

That's it, you don't know how many people I wish were able to do this! I guess it isn't always so easy but some must learn the hard way!

Well done!
