How can it be

How can it be

that only now I can see

what was always there

in front of me?

How can it be

that I was so blinded 

by desire and need

that you were able to fall through the cracks?

You slipped into my life,

my heart,

my dreams,

you became everything.

But in one wicked moment

with a sharp word of good bye

I lost it all 

because I lost sight of me.

How can it be

that I was such a fool

and I let you go

when really,

I should have sheltered in your arms.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
