This is Where I Leave You

This is where I leave you

Because you won’t go back

And you don’t want to go forward

And I can’t stay here

 

You have always been honest

and I’ve caught you in lies

or exaggerations

or something that was meant to ease me

but tore at my skin from inside

 

And a deep breath

an exhale of relief

This is where I leave you

Paralyzed

I wouldn’t even call it a break

An unhappiness

Regret

 

The void

In the shell

Of my emotions

 

A white canvas

Torn thru

My motivation

 

There are no pieces

There was no break

 

The cold

Burned

Hot as the sun

 

And I am paralyzed

In the actions of anything

To keep my mind

From living

 

For you

You know I have poems

For all of you

And words for memories

A collection piling in my books

Songs are great expressions

Some have acquired whole bands

 

I don’t love you

But feeling for all

Are read in my words

No tears are left on my pages

No pain released

 

Just a poem

About

For

In spite of you

 

Each to his own I have left

Pages of sorrow and love

But I have nothing to give you

Cause I see nothing from you
