The Return

I left you, without a second thought,

to chase a life I didn’t want,

not a happy second has gone by,

since the moment I said, “Goodbye.”

Chasing money; a puppy devouring his tail,

thinking of heaven yet living in hell;

and now I return, heart in hand;

dried out, crumbled, pieces of sand.

Begging for forgiveness, once again;

praying, like a fool, you’ll take me in.

Promising I’ll not leave, hoping it’s true…

for I’ve never loved, the way I love you.

I was wrong, but it’s happened before;

once, is an accident; twice, I’m a whore.

Never cheated on a soul in my life,

yet, when it comes to words…I lose sight…

Please don’t take me back, leave me to die…

not deserving a tear from your eyes;

pathetic, in misery, I should stay…

watching you,


ruthlessly walking away…

Hello All,

I’m tiptoeing my way back in. I’ve been gone a long time and have probably lost readers, and friends I’ve made here on WordPress. I’ve read some posts, and realize I’ve missed so much. I don’t know how much I’ll post or how often. I haven’t written the first thing until this, this morning…I’ve got some work to do, I know.

Much Love To You,

  1. Well this is beautiful and dark but also full of desire to reach that elusive something. I have missed reading you and honestly, your writing feels like it has wanted to escape your fingers for a long time! And you know maybe a few of your older followers are gone or absent or who knows but those who come to you again now you’re back will be the….how to put this….quality friends! 😂 like moi!
    Be well and so happy that I’ll be reading you again!

    1. Thank you! It’s good to be back. It’s invigorating to read posts again…and writing is so cathartic. I’ll be doing more but not everyday; not yet. It’s wonderful to know you’re still here and writing as passionately as ever! Missed you my friend…truly.
