She Walked Away

She Walked Away

She rose above
Time and again
Barely catching her breath
Lost in his sin
Though lust kept control
Feelings within
She never forgave him
Truth cursed her whim
He had a wife
No jewelry or care
She had to let go
Heart needed to slow
So hurting the lies
Resistant to her tries
She willed her heart
Understood her part
Forced mind
Pulled the lever
She silently walked
Away forever

Where

Where

Where were you when she woke?
    when she cried?
Where were you when she dreamed?
    when she was lonely?
    when she was lost?
Where were you when she was hungry?
    when she couldn’t get out of bed?
    when she couldn’t move?
Where were you?
Why? Why?
Look what you’ve done!
You destroyed her!
And now,  Now!
I’m going to have to try to put her together again.

Too Late

Too Late

He assumed it was okay
She only felt unloved
He thought she wouldn’t notice
She only felt unloved
He believed they ‘could handle it’
She only felt unloved
He only thought of himself
She only felt unloved
She slowly moved on
He only wished he hadn’t
She lived a fuller life
He only wished he hadn’t
She found herself
He only wished he hadn’t
She was finally able to find her soulmate
He finally realized he lost his

Enough

Enough

Enough of your excuses.
Enough of your frustrations.
Enough of your questions.
Enough of your quiet stares.
Enough of your ignorance.
Enough of your caring.
Enough.
Enough of all of it.
She put down her thoughts.
Cold words, wrapped heavily in emotion.
Losing him was almost Enough to stop.
But. She continued.
Continued to write about why.
Why she wasn’t Enough for him.
