Moving on

I just didn’t find the courage
I just couldn’t find the words
I didn’t have the notion
I couldn’t foresee the hurt
Now I see you everyday
And we have to act like it’s all okay

I just didn’t understand it
I couldn’t stop you fading
Now I see you every day
Both of us masquerading
Hiding behind excuses, it hurts
Each day I’m tripping over your words

I just don’t know why you left
I couldn’t find a way to reach you
Now I have to see you every day
I’m stuck dancing my words around you
You’re sending mixed signals, I’m lost
I know you can’t want me; too high a cost

The others start to notice
The others know something’s changed
I have to see you every day
We’re going through the motions; estranged
I don’t want to be like this any more
So these are my last steps through this door

Goodbye, you were my friend
You were so much more, you see
So happy, I loved you
You just disappeared on me
So I’m shaking up and moving on
Hopeful you’ll find kindness again before I’m gone

Poetry Scribbles

josi3dee View All →

I’ve been an avid reader and scribbler for years but only recently started thinking about publishing my work.
I’ve always enjoyed writing and have, since 2008, been producing scripts for theatre as my main focus of writing, but always scribbling poems, songs and short stories for fun, and/or catharsis. I’m also a keen sketcher and sketchnoter.
