I'm Not Doing this Again

I'm Not Doing this Again

A Poem by Topaz
"

In response to my most recent significant break up. I am totally devastated.

"

 

Famous last word why can't I learn,

but I swear

I'm not doing this again.


When I fall, I fall hard

but I swear,

For sure, I'm not doing this again.


Oppressive loneliness, threatens to suffocate,

but I swear,

This is it, I'm not enduring this again.


Lovely lips, my hearts desire

but I swear,

I'm not going to love again.


My heart breaks, it's torn apart

but I swear,

I'm not repeating this again.


Age is catching me, alone again

but I swear,

I'm not going through this this again.


Oh hello Death, my old friend

and I knew for sure,

I wasn't going to embrace love again.

This is a great vow made to yourself.
You have the liberty to keep it.
Love to read the repetition of the phrase,"I'm not doing this again".
Very well done.
