The Final Act

The Final Act

A Poem by JohnnyB

What we had is over,
I've decided to let you go,
Just in case you're wondering why,
I thought I would let you know;

I suppose you'll say I'm heartless,
Who knows, I just might be,
I only know that when I'm with you,
No peace is given to me;

I used to think that you were special,
But I realize how wrong I've been,
Now when you come into my mind,
I think of what a mess I'm in;

You seemed so sweet when I first met you,
I guess it must have been a show,
Because you're not the person I met back then,
That's why I intend to go;

If you don't think that I feel pain,
Then you're the one without a heart,
Because time after time you do things,
That tear me all apart;

It seems you think by saying you're sorry,
You make everything okay,
But you've built a wall that separates us,
The final brick was laid today;

I wish I didn't have to go,
But I feel I have no choice,
I've tried to talk to you more than once,
But you fail to hear my voice;

I'm tired of speaking to unhearing ears,
And listening to lie after foolish lie,
So as the popular rock song goes:
I believe it's time for me to fly.

Lol There is no need to thank me. I just know what I like. And I agree, that poetry shouldn't be "stale" or overkill for the most part. I personally think that most people try SO hard to sound profound that they drowned in they own words and ideas. I can say this because before I knew better I use to write like that. I'm glad you're still choosing to write. I look forward to your new work. =)

Thanks for what? Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my stuff. It's nice to know that I've turned a previously "noninterested" person into one that can appreciate and write "romantic" poetry. For that, I thank you for taking the time, and giving your mind a chance to be open enough to consider that it doesn't have to be all bad, or stale. People like you inspire me to keep writing!

I don't have much to say to this except, thank you.
