Bye ()

… And just like that

It ended.

*

Addicted, she was

To balancing the hearts of men

Pushed her luck

Off a cliff, attempting to unearth

A combination

From her many slaves

That could equate to the weight of mine.

*

… Ambitious …

For I am not just a man

Hieroglyphics from doors long sealed hide

The key to that which defines

Me… purge the thought of witnessing

My reflection in the mirror

For there is not more than one me.

*

Consider this an exorcism

Of all I restrained,

As I waved good-bye.

    A very nice poem! The last line was truly emphatic….

    “Tireless work, infinite time, pain unexpressed,
    He’s my teacher, values and lessons, he has showered.”

        I’m glad you like it, just making sure I deal with hidden emotions properly instead of lying to myself that i’ve moved on ❤

        no covering it up, let it air out like a wound, it will scab and just try not to pick it too much, it always heals in time….and gives good fodder for writing too btw 🙂
