I waited for you to go, for SO long -
Holding my breath such icy sighs!
Clinging soot-like to my hazy sky.
I prayed for you to go, go soon
And tip-toed steps around your words.
I begged for you to go - DESPAIR!
No vestiges of self remained.
Keep calm...keep sane, controlled, aware.
You went, at last! I was so sure!
Decades returned your voice again
To trample on my fragile frame.
I liked this poem. I really felt the emotion of wanting someone to get out of your life before they drained all of you away.
Then that feeling that they had gone for good only to return years later to haunt you and trample over your life again.
Its always a shock when you close a chapter of your life only to find that the person who made your life so much hell has tried to squeeze back in again.
