Running…

~

No matter where you are…
No matter what the situation…

Know he’ll never forget you…
Despite your condemnation…

Despite how you treated him…
How you filled him with a sadness…

At the way he was discarded…
In the midst of your angry madness…

That put him on the side line…
And took him out of the game…

He’ll never look at you differently…
You will always remain the same…

And though your decent into insanity…
Tried to drag him down too…

He still can’t shake his feelings…
Can’t shake the images of you…

As in the midst of the silence…
In his depressive solitude…

He remembered all the good times…
Even if they are now subdued…

And the pictures of your face…
Slowly whirled around his mind…

Knowing that for each cutting word…
There were moments you were kind…

And stood in cold isolation…
He had the chance to reflect…

On everything you said to him…
The words that left him wrecked…

And wishing he’d never met you…
Wondering where it all went wrong…

How you came to the conclusion…
That his lyrics didn’t fit your song…

That tainted all those memories…
Of the good times that you shared…

The brief but stolen moments…
Where he felt like you really cared…

Yet he never will forget you…
He’ll carry you deep down inside…

But the boy must now start running…
And those eyes must never cry…

  1. …something tells me she didn’t come away unaffected either.
    Wonder if you’ve ever written (or been inspired to write) a poem based from a song duet.

    • I am sure you are correct – after all, there are 3 sides to every story like this – his, hers and then the truth! There are a couple of writings inspired by duets within the blog – feel free to suggest a song? Or even better – write something and submit as a Guest Poet? Slots always available! Thanks for taking time to read and comment – Cheers J

      • …this could be her song (perspective). The poem-ing is best left to you. Me writing a poem (for human consumption) would undoubtedly put me over my allotment of embarrassing moments for the year (and it is only May after all!)

  2. Ah, this spoke to me. I recognise this scenario, but from the other person’s perspective. It is interesting, and challenging to reflect on heartbreak from both sides. A useful pause for thought. Thank you
