A poem, The day you walked away Updated Oct. 25-2014

Updated on February 17, 2015
always exploring profile image

I am a writer of poetry and fiction. I especially love flash fiction. My name is Ruby, and I live in Southern Illinois. I am a retired R.N.

The wind tugged at your turned down winter hat

It was a bitter crispy cold winter day

When you left me standing at the window

Watching as you walked away

The blowing wind tugged at your turned down winter hat

You never turned around

Not once did you ever look back

My voice was only a whisper as I tried to call your name

I knew in my heart our time together

Was over, never to reclaim

As I watched you the snow began to fall

Wishing and praying you would turn

Against the wind and call

Tears of rememberance flooding my inner soul

No matter how much I tried emotions erupted

With tears I couldn't control

Memories, oh so many, Locked deep inside

Memories I will remember

Never ever to subside

Restless was our visitor in our home for a very long time

I watched as you paced, checking your watch

Usually in the evening around nine

The closeness we shared for so many happy years

Seemed to drift away

As I sat quietly shedding silent tears

I could hardly stand the uncertainty, so I gave you a fearful choice

With tears streaming

You reluctantly found your voice

Confessing your unfaithfulness, eyes turned away

I knew you were hurting

What more could I possibly say?

Nothing would ease our pain deep inside our broken hearts

Leaving us both empty

Hoping time might mend the broken parts

The snow drifts began to pile as the wind whipped and swirled

I watched you disappear in the distance

Leaving me alone in this lonely world.


Source

Will she forgive him?

I'm standing here looking out the same window on the sad day I watched you walk away. The wind tugging at your turned down winter hat, now, I see you returning on this beautiful summer day. You look like a man who wants forgiveness. Your gait is slower as you reach the porch. I search your eye's as a tear trickles slowly down your cheek.

I feel sad but unforgiving.

You broke my heart in a million little pieces. It took me years to mend. Our eye's meet. I feel weak but remain unyielding.

" You look like a man who could use a cup of hot coffee, come in. " He's smiling as he opens the screen door. I hurry to the kitchen to find his favorite cup.

      And in that moment

      forgiveness blossomed

      but hardened heart

      refused

      to relent.

      I love your poem.

      Oh Shyron, you make my heart sing with gladness. Your compliments are so heartwarming. I wrote this with tears flowing, thinking of my husband. Our break-up didn't happen this way, but there was another woman and it broke my heart. I couldn't forgive him when he begged for forgiveness, he took his own life, using a gun. I live with this and I'm sorry I didn't forgive him. Thank you dear one. I love your heart....

      I really enjoyed this poem, from the flow of the lines to the way the cold winter's day reflected a love gone cold, and a feeling of loneliness. The frozen heart image you selected goes perfectly with the frozen heart imagery in the poem. You conveyed the emotions of a person in this situation beautifully, great job overall.

      Sadly, we've all been there in one degree or another. You captured the essence of grief that permeates out hearts when we know that one we loved is never coming back, and that he was gone before we even knew. Great job, always exploring. Voting up.

      The imagery here is breath-taking. I can see each moment of loss and feel the depth of pain in your diction. I love the way you used the coldness of winter snow juxtaposed with the warmth of the heart... Even through the narrator's loss and recognition of infidelity, we can still feel the endless love of two people who have been closely connected where memory will not fade. Great work and voted up.

      Hi Ruby,

      Separation is always painful for all the beings created on this earth. Man, since have higher senses and expressive mind, feels the pain a bit more.

      The portrayal of hurt and acceptance of the betrayal has been so beautifully painted that I can clearly visualize the scenario.

      Have a lovely day.

      The ending of your poem here Ruby tops it off and has sealed the deal for me, life is rough without your significant other, and love is hard to let go for sure.

      I had to do so many countless times and never went back myself, because I was only leaving to help us both find a better much more suitable lover and or love life. Parting ways in any way shape or form is surely tough, and your poem makes such a reality oh so clear indeed.

      Nicely expressed, and its poetic quality is superb as well, nice rhyme schemes and all. Thumbs up and getting shared right away.

      Even the few people that do genuinely dislike or even hate me, (well I hope its only a few), will tell you I am nothing but honest. Its how humanity should be. I have no problem sharing my personal life as well as my views. However, I am never going to bully anyone into seeing it my way, will try to relate every time, and always keep an open mind. I am out to learn something new not just offer something for someone else to learn.

      Hello Abby, No, this is not about me although i did have a painful marriage x2. My first husband was unfaithful with my best friend. My second was so controlling i felt like i was in a prison. I have learned to be happy, unmarried and i am contented. Please, i love it when someone new reads my work and feels comfortable enough to express their views and sharing. Honest people do that, that's just the way it is. I am extremely happy that you found me on Hubpages. I think we have a vast amount to share. Thank you..Cheers..

      There came a day, I walked away

      It was never for me, it was always for you.

      When that day came, you begged me to stay

      I let the tears fall, in my heart it rang true

      That the day had come, to walk away

      Let you go, I am not the one for you.

      I left that day, because I loved enough not to stay

      Loved you and let you go, to find love that's true.

      ....This was what I wrote when I left my husband, my first husband. Reading what you wrote brought back many painful but also some happy memories...he was unfaithful and in the end after 9 years thought he loved me and could be the husband I desearved. Truth was, I had to let him go because he was lying to himself. I knew it. He still doesn't see that. But, when he married his third wife and I saw them together after marriage for the first time, I knew it was the right thing to do....sometimes letting go of someone we think we can't live without...is the only things we can do. I know its painful as I have been on both ends...and I have been in unimaginable pain...but I know that I did the right thing by leaving that time. My second husband I thank God to this day he didn't answer my prayers to bring him home to me, because I have realized so much about what love is really about. I am sorry if this is based on your own life, that you felt that pain. But, I see a strong women in letting him go.

      Hello Art, I agree. So many people putting on a front, faking happiness, but i also believe people want to be contented and happy. There is so much uncertainty in the world, seems people have pulled away from God. I can remember growing up, going to church was what you did, now the churches are fighting to see who can have the most members. I know that i still come to God in prayer each day, hopefully i will find the way to be what God wants from his people. I am so happy that this piece has helped you in some way..God Bless you

      Firstly,thank you for commenting on my hub. Now to the important business! lol, This was an awesome read for me. Somehow in reading this I have grasp an innerpeace and closure for a (love gone bad) time of my history. Oh the lessons life teaches right. I see so much anger and hurt in the world today behind smiles. It's true, what they say, the eyes don't lie, but the mouth is a different story! I voted this beautiful because in a very sad way it is just that,beauty. We are all works in progress and some of us are not the work of goodness. Our bitterness, loneliness and outright anger from fear are working us farther away from that which is good. What I would call true righeousness which is the mark/calling that our Wonderful Creator is nudging us towards. Very well written poem. It has a voice to be heard by any who would read it. Thank you for sharing! Loving thoughts your way! :) Artin2012

      Hi Always Exploring.

      Yes I am still around, just put another hub up, just trying to catch up on emails. And this poem caught my eye. How beautifully, deeply put, I felt I was there inside the poem.

      Perhaps you would be intersted in my poem, but this is I think along the similar lines as yours, but its about a person with dyslexia and their need.

      speak to you later

      You have a natural talent for penning down heart-wrenching stories. All I can say is that many will relate. Beautiful.

      A lonely heart so cold and freezing, feeling the pain of losing someone. In this winter season, that yearly comes, the sad memories would stir over again and ever.

      Thanks for sharing this kind of emotion.

      I liked the tone and the emotion in this. I always loved this kind of poetry and I am beginning to share some of my own and I found this encouraging in a way. Thank you; it's very beautiful!
