You are not him.
Not the fool you play.
all will laugh
never noticing
unchecked because
none of them love.
I feel sorry
babe I really do.
Guess why.
I loved you.
I would have done anything
for in your light 
joke I became
all I feel
for what you have done.
Your loss
our loss
for once
I truly belived
I had found my soul mate.
The man who understood me
who let me be me
who encouraged me
who read my poetry.
Blinded by tears
I have to break free.
I have to run.
I will wait…..
I will wait….
I will wait….
pathetic am I.
January 3/19

Author: Jay-lyn Doerksen

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom

      1. That’s exactly where I pull most of mine from too 🙂 If I ever get to publish a book of my poetry I would dedicate it to all the horrible men in my life without whom I could not have written this book! Lol 🤣
