Good bye My Love

I have fallen

not at your feet

but within myself

and there is no going back.


you are entwined with my past

the hurt

the pain that I feel.

I wish that it had not happened this way

I wish that I could still be yours

yet I know

there is no way

that I can submit to you again.

My way of saying good-bye

it was not right

I should have explained further

I should have explained it at all

there is no way of knowing

what monsters lay in my bed.

Memories that have been hidden

you brought to the forefront

the anguish

the pain

the darkness that enveloped

I curled within myself.

Screaming in my head.

I am sorry my love

I wish it could  be different

we must walk away

while love is still everlasting.

  1. Nicely penned Jay-lyn.

    Has the pen turned up yet?

    I have arranged with Britchy to send the pens to not arrive to her, and she will resend them internally from UNY to your locations direct. I will put them into the post this morning.



      1. Well l have emailed you this morning Jay-lyn – an hour ago l posted the next batch out to you and G/Ma, – going to USA via New York and then to be sent internally – l have proofed them, tracked them and everything l can do. See email. 🙂

      2. Let’s hope these one’s arrive 🙂 My theory, is that if they are in the internal US mail system, they should do.

        Britchy got hers pretty quickly, so all going well, l hope you should have yours within 2 weeks of today 🙂
