Vis Dare Challenge # 9 – Alone



I avert my eyes from
looking at you
shedding your tears
that meld with the rain
and hit the ground
I do not cry
There is nothing
you can say
to make this right
leave me to my
I am alone, but I am
strong, just not today
or at this moment
my universe will heal
being without you
shall not let me
linger in this pain
I experience now
I don’t require
your penitence
I need to sit
gather thoughts
to toughen
to block
further weathering
to my heart
trust me
I’m a survivor
no need
to complicate it
any more with
your words
stop saying
you are sorry
I ask you
be silent
like the walls
on my part
assuming we
could be
more than
We can’t
you said
so life goes on
don’t stay
and beg
I won’t remain
as the monument
I will move on
without you
