abandonment

they were here
I talked with them
mixed messages of life
playful banter
and the like
and they left
they were here
at one time
or another
maybe several times
maybe once
and they left
they were here
keeping me afloat
giving me a purpose
driving me on
and they left
they were here
when my purpose
my drive
became secondary
to them

and they left
me
with
nothing
like
I
will
leave
them
with
nothing
more

they were here
and I lost sight
about why
I was here
I'll stay
and
leave
them
behind

That was so powerful, painful...and well written. Makes me wish I could still write.

The words are there. Just put them on paper (or screen) and let them do the rest.
