Walking Away (A Poem)

Walking Away (A Poem)

I understand now
What you were trying to say
I did not see it
Till you went away

Don’t walk away from me he says
But I know no other way
I want you to stay he says
But I just walk away

Do you say what you mean
Do you mean what you say
Help me understand
Just don’t go away

I don’t know what to say
He wants me in his life
But I can only walk away
I can not be his wife

We can get through this
Slowly day by day
Together we can
Each and every day

What can I do
I can not say
I know not what to do
So I just walk away

I don’t write poetry very often but every once in a while, something gets to rattling around in my head (sort of like a marble in a shoe box) and I have to try and work it out. Hopefully this makes more sense to you it does to me.

This is my contribution this week to the Creative Buzz Hop!! This week’s topic is choice! Thanks Tamara and crew for having me again!!

    Nice job. Poetry is one type of writing I stay away from as I’m not that good.

      Thanks Phil! I don’t think my poetry is that good either but here lately I have written a couple and just decided to fly them out there and see where they land!!!

    I’m with Phil. I haven’t felt compelled to let my “marbles” out since I was an angsty teen, but this is good. And walking away is never easy but sometimes the most rewarding thing.

      I have never been one to write poetry either! Since I started this online writing adventure I have been on, I guess it activated my creative side! Thanks for reading and commenting!

    Maria, thanks for sharing this beautiful write…’s really so hard to deal with an impasse in relationships. So we just walk. So poignant. Thanks for sharing with us…and I’m sharing now!
