As the Ghost of you Blew Away. {Poem}


View this post on Instagram

We had become distant

Reaching out to you,

I risked an I miss you

There was no answer to my knock

Concerns began to haunt me

Its been two months

Another month…patience thins

Knocking another time, no answer

I dwell in sadness, asking

How was I so naive?

How did I miss the signs?

How was I so disposable in your eyes?

Stuck in sadness that time doesn’t heal

Weakening, I knock a third time 

I expect no answer—you don’t disappoint

Denying more pain, I turn to self-pity

You left silently, never to return

So stupid for trusting you’d say, at least, goodbye

Pity grows into fierce anger

At your vaporous nature

I release it…you have no care for it, nor me

The ghost of you leaves my heart

Regret flows in, so much heavier

Bowed under its weight, I break.
