My Story Of

I go for what I want
lofty goals tho they may be
Some things, they were not mine
I waited 'till they came to me
Others did not belong
to anyone I could see,
I reached and grabbed for them,
Mine! Lest they should flee

I'm talking moments here
both pieces of joy and glee
But none of what I have
cost more than all of free
The only thing I've got
causing my conscience to bleed
Is what I've now with him
that he used to give to she

I swear I didn't take
what wasn't mine to dream
I only let him fly
and perch now in my tree
He was leaving anyway
escaping for to flee
But I don't expect you
to understand my "We"

All I want is absence
of judgment's burning sting
And possibly acceptance
on the day I wear his ring
Though even if you don't
I know the birds will sing
And he'll be by my side
For happiness to bring

Although I cannot relate in the slightest, and have no incline how one would feel in this situation for my one pathetic experiences with matters of the heart I've tried to squash out of my head for...nearly a year now, with all by goodbyes rejected and being manipulated so it looked like I was holding on and I can only blame myself, I still enjoyed this piece. Forgive that little bout of rambling; check out my poem Liar if you want to hear the rest of my rambling put in a poetic way on that topic... Anyway, good work Mary! There are many ways to view this piece; but I don't really know what they are since I have no experience...

He left you with the ring around the tub! Life is funny sometimes and then sometimes it takes awhile to finally laugh

After reading your work and the other comments I came up with the thought that if he was leaving anyway then he could not have realized what a great inventive mind you have.
Great poem which was well written.

Bunny: *giggles* That's quite alright. If you mistakenly thought one of my pieces were Robert's... I can only be flattered as he's an excellent writer!! No apologies neccessary. I'm glad you read my work, and comment as well. The comments always mean so much to me. PS: Thanks for encouragement as well. I am so happy! SO VERY HAPPY. I'll be writing more freely on the subject in a month or two. Hugs around to all.

WOW! Thank you so much~! You know what? You are the ONLY person that has commented with that view. I thought perhaps I was the only one out here who felt this way. *grin* Nice to know I'm not alone. He was leaving by the way, had an "escape" savings when I met him, and had already spoken to a lawyer. But then again, what was that you said? I don't need to justify!!! I am happy, by the way. VERY happy. :) (Finally) *grin*
