• "I see what you don’t. Write about things least spoken of. Speak less, listen more. Watch less, observe more. Know more by learning more. Attach less, detach more. Be seen less, remembered more. And believe that less is, in fact, more."
  • "Today, organs can get replaced but no one has found a replacement for lost trust, abandoned hearts, shattered souls and tears that flowed. Imagine that!"
  • "Life is not a straight line. It is a circle. See you a-round!"
  • If you do not wish to cross the bridge when you get to it go ahead, take a boat... either way, cross over, you will have to."

Fare Thee Well

FareTheeWell-Byron

 

Fare Thee Well

When we had simplicity, I was there
When we felt lonely, I was there
When we felt alienated, I was there
When you loved me, I was there…
**
When you spoke, I listened
When you joked, I giggled
When you smiled, I twinkled
When you read my poem, I felt kindled
**
When you ignored me, I waited in agony
When you forgot me, I faded from your memory
When you deserted me, I lost hope
When you moved on, you cut the rope…
**
Fog, snow, rain and a crowd now surround you,
Piercing this smog feels like being drawn ever so slowly into quicksand…
The more I pierce it, the more it suffocates me…
The more I shout out for you, the farther you feel…
**
You could have reached out for me,
You could have held my hand as you walked faster,
You could have said “come with me”,
You could have at least attempted to not leave me behind,
**
But you didn’t.
**
And now,
All I’m left with,
Is this inevitable moment of truth…
**
But darling,
I fare thee well.
**
Love,
M*
