We were on the back burner
Tucked in dusty corners for safe keeping
But left too long
So we remained
Cracked and faded
Doing our best to go through the motions
With short hellos
And quick goodbyes
Always promise for a next time
But somewhere along the path
We lost our way
Always straying farther
Until we couldn’t make it back again
Oh what could this be about? So mysterious.
Who am I kidding. you can see right through this. Anyway. I wrote this at a time when I was feeling lonely because life happened and things changed. I wasn’t loving the way that things were going but there comes a time when you have to accept that sometimes change is for the best.
How are y’all liking Poetry Mondays so far? I know we’re only three weeks in. Is there anything subject you would like me to write about? Leave suggestions in the comments below.
