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.

    Just beautiful! It's crazy to think how someone can have so much control over you and you think you finally got your life back and they walk back in and turn it upside down-strong write!

    The wanting and emotion of needing someone to move on before they drained you of all your emotion shone through this piece.

    That is so true. When you finally moving on that's when the past is trying to tap in and killing the Well being. A very emotional write. Take care.

    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.
