She’s hiding a secret –
A life-long mystery.
It lives inside-
A part of her history.
She was let down
And quit the show:
She won her fight,
When she let go.
Somewhere, sometime on this planet,
Through mist and the midnight blue sun
At the end of one chapter, effulgent,
Lighting day will return that someone.
Crepuscular shadows are lurching,
Lulled by his adventurous gaze,
In retrospection no longer indulging,
She will greet tomorrow’s embrace.
She moves steadily, clad in new mettle
And engulfed in the splendour of life,
He is there, and together they’re walking
Past delirium and purposeless strife.
Don’t waste time on those who don’t deserve it,
Don’t confuse friends with those who exploit.
There are no one-sided relationships –
These are regret, subjection and void.
On the outside you look like you’re content,
Noticing small things, you’re keen to spread joy.
Take some pride in yourself and accept that
You are nobody’s gutless toy.
