Tuesday poetry: Chicken soup for the soul

You have disappointed me

far more

than you have ever

loved me.

 

———————————————-

 

Each day that life presents

I remind myself

to be thankful;

Despite my heartbreak

and personal tragedy,

I know that beneath

the hysteria

a lesson exists to be learned,

and I must be brave enough

to embrace it.

 

———————————————-

 

True friends

are the sunlight of my days

and the solace

of my nights

 

———————————————-

 

We started as strangers,

sharing our stories

over a bustling crowd of flesh-eaters;

The booze flowed,

while the smoke from your cigarette

swirled about my face.

We laughed a lot,

between smiles and glances,

and after four hours of fleeting seconds,

I finally drove you home

without the courage

to stay behind.

 

———————————————-

 

You pleaded for those

three

simple

words

to escape my lips

and so,

I gave them to you

along with several others –

I don’t love you anymore.

    Mozzie – I relate to this completely. It’s like you summed up my relationships in these few lines.
    Your poems are beautiful and moving.
