    Goodbye...

    What is it to know you and never see you for what you are?
    How am I to believe you,
    when I watch you from afar?
    It'z never what it's cracked up to be.......
    never what I signed up for see....
    it's hard to find the words to say goodbye....
    hard to walk away with pride....
    but staying will leave me dying inside....
    denying that reality is what we seek....
    so now I will be slow to speak....
    meek and willing to find a place of serenity.
    No longer feeding you from my reserviors of infinity...
    I'm tired of replacing eternity with my marternity...
    playing mommie no longer suites my role...
    I've tried everyway I know how to love you...
    but my love I see was not your goal.
    You wanted to replenish you, define thru me...
    a place of hiding facts no one could read...
    I'm not your book, your fairytale dream.
    Sick of playing doctor to your issues,
    while you drive them to the extreme.
    You effortlessly have tried to give me new perceptions of love...
    but the realizations that what shared was the true definition of lust.
    Trust
    I'm better without you...
    happy without trying to decipher your mixed signals...
    better breathing not pissed because when prompted you fail to give a...
    Dam
    I thought this thing would last past the tick tocks of the clock...
    but perhaps the premature hope
    clouded my view of the scope
    that led me to know but not see you for what you were...
    a blur a distant far off perception of neglection...
    the warning signs from the gate should have told me you would fail inspection...
    A false prophet speaking biblically about the "love" you had for me...
    a wolf within sheep's...
    but before I get to deep.....
    what is it to know you and not see you for what you are?
    No longer believing you... because I peeped you from afar.
    It's never what it's cracked up to be,
    sometimes it's way more that what you sign up for see...
    but just like I found the words to say goodbye...
    you find them to and walk with pride...
    cuz staying will only leave us dying inside....
    *peace*

    We all need our mate in difficult times, but it seems like this relationship was one sided. Goodbye could be the first step to a better life. Well written piece.

    GOODBYE is a lonely word

    Goodbye gives a sobering glimpse
    of how we should inventory and take
    a close look at the relations we keep.
    It is a powerful and releasing flow. Thank you for sharing.
