    ***I just had to bring it back**


    I heard someone say once
    A poem is never finished
    It’s abandoned
    Never to be finished, always left in a state of
    Limbo
    I will abandon this poem as I was once abandoned
    By my hopes and dreams
    Left standing there
    With my mouth wide open
    And a tear in the corner of my eye
    I was abandoned
    Like I am going to abandon this poem
    That will so eloquently tell the tale
    Of my loneliness
    And my silent shame
    And my self doubts
    My wouldas , couldas, shouldas
    I will leave these words on this page
    Flapping in the wind
    I will abandon the words that so lovingly
    Flowed from my finger tips
    Onto paper to be read and felt and absorbed……….
    Like I was abandoned
    By love
    My heart left hanging there all alone
    With no one to love, no one to cherish
    No one to……….
    A poem is never finished
    It’s abandoned
    Left to fend for itself
    Until picked up by another scribe
    Brave enough to search for an ending
    As I have been left searching for the other half
    Of me
    Hoping against hope
    That I am brave enough
    To find another heart
    To cherish
    To cling to
    Until the very end
    Until
    Eternity
    A poem is never finished
    It’s abandoned
    As love has abandoned me
