Poetry Room

I didn’t think our friendship would last
So I was shocked when you kept calling
after we didn’t work together.

You told me you wanted to keep in touch
To still be friends
That our friendship would be a real one.

I pretended that it didn’t matter

You told me you loved me
You told me you’d never leave me.

I told you I was fine without you
I told you I understood why you were leaving.

I didn’t.
You did.


Going deep in these poems is making me figure out things that I hadn’t completely faced on my own. I plan on going back to writing actual blog posts to go along with #shewrites2016 tomorrow, so we’ll go back to our originally scheduled programming then. The poetry still will be part of it, but I need more prose in my life too.


About lana1967

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
