Not so love Poetry: letting it go


Did I ever tell you how much

               I love you?

Maybe I forgot, maybe just one day

out of five years and a few months.

Did I ever tell you how much

    I was disappointed in you?

Maybe more times than I should’ve

                  The lies you spoke, cheating

                  deserved regret,

not only of you, for myself as well,

how could I go on knowing?

Fear of being without you, anyone

consumed me, took over like a virus

rapidly killing off the truth to make up for

what was never said

                 I’m sorry.

Did I ever tell you that I got over you?

no, maybe, I didn’t, couldn’t.

I needed to be needed, like a bitch to her pups

sucking the life out of me so I could feel

               something, anything.

Did I ever tell you that I met the girl

               you let go?

She never let, she’s standing right here.

  • Trust your writing

    Trust and faith are part of your creative life and persistence helps as well. Creativity wants to work through you and at some point you have to step a side to let imagination take over.

  • Writing Whenever & Wherever

    Writing is more than just putting words together to create a different world. Creativity is a way of life - sometimes you have to step out of the and let creativity take over.

  • Fog

                    Fog Further into the slide of doom my thoughts linger with the fog of the morning tide - I think I made you up as I shut my eyes and let the flashes of light dance freely....

I enjoyed this very much MA, isn't it funny how the fear that someone will leave causes us to say and do the very things that move them in that direction.

If women would only have the courage to say what they need and if men could only have the courage to give it to them, we just might succeed more. =:)
