Just Leave

Just Leave

I am exhausted
Weary of you now
I need to breathe
Somewhere else
Where you are not
spewing your toxicity
 
My head needs calm
and my heart, peace
There is neither
Where you are
I need to find
that safe place
 
To switch off from you
This time forever
So I do not have to
Listen to your 
false accusations
To justify your wrongs
 
Leave, go, get out
were your commands
I heard, I did, I went
Yet you are still unhappy
Your words still come
Hurtful, cruel, indelible

Leaving

Leaving

I know you are leaving me
and I start to lose control
You are walking away
with my heart and my soul
 
Not a moment’s hesitation
before you open that door
I am already your history
as I slump to the floor
 
You take all that I have
And then some more
I am an empty vessel
with nothing left to pour
 
How does it feel
to have this much power?
This, my question to you
Received a deadly glower
 
There is hatred in your eyes
and I can see my reflection
A shadow of my former self
I will be your last abjection

Word Prompt
Hesitate

Solitary Man

Solitary Man

I am haunted by your words
That lay heavy on my heart
We are only as strong
as the miles between us
Destined to be apart

There is a sense of dislocation
I am an empty vessel
With all the hangover
and none of the buzz
All these things I wrestle

Reflecting on our last night
Sitting in the park by the lake
The color of your eyes
In the moonlight
I melted like a snowflake

I was dancing on air
Until you laid out your plan
You were leaving me
Never to return
I am now a solitary man
