Without a Backward Glance

Source

Just walk away, that's what I'm told

It sounds so easy to do

But how do you walk away

From the one that found your heart?

Granted, it was only a small part

But you were the first to really reach it

So was I a fool to believe you?

Believe you when you say you care,

That you think about me, that you miss me?

You'd think that I'd have learned my lesson

I've been fed those lines time and time again

Well, I guess the time has come

For me to walk away

Just one foot in front of the other

Without a backward glance. . .

Very powerful words that many can not do. People stay in bad relationships for years because they feel that's all they have and will have nothing if they leave. Only after taking the first step and deciding you deserve better than that. There are also many people who return back months after only to take the person back. It's very brave to begin again. Thank you for sharing. Have a great day.

Hi, you found an old one. What a surprise. This is not a completely biographical piece, but it was inspired by a personal experience. Sometimes the only thing to do is walk away. Some people just never change.

I am surprised no one found it. It is a nice piece. It actually relates perfectly to an old relationship I was in. Do you have your stories on other sites ?I try to write as much as I can. Thank you for sharing.

I have things all over the web. Some of them I have been credited as author. Other things were sold for full rights and I was not credited for anything. As far as other writing sites, there's my country music website and that's about it. I am looking into participating on some others, though, for the networking benefits of them. I just find that it is hard to have time for all that I would like to participate in. Sometimes I can't eevn keep up with HP and my website is so neglected. I need to get it backon track.
