leaving happiness

leaving happiness

A Poem by Frank M Keller

Cowering in the corner of fear.

I realized where all my sadness began.

It was that first night when I had moved away

from that place I called home and where my friends are.

That night in the parking lot

that new place I called home

everything was taken.

Shirt on my back and just the memories of the days when I was happy.

Fifteen years later,

destroying what was import to me this night,

broken inside and out

chasing shadows

traveling down a very dark path of destruction

I cower in fear

wanting to run back  


to that place and friends,

that place

where I had returned

to reunite with happiness

this passed new years eve night.

That night

a new friend

In need far away

heart broken and devastated

cried for help

I could not hold that night

 say everything was going to be OK.

Many nights latter,

I held her hands 

looked her in the eyes

that calm night by the sea

made a Promos with ever once of my soul

to always make sure she was safe!

to never let any harm

come to her or her daughter!

If I run

so far away,

  I break my word.

and my word

honor is all i have!

And leave them behind

one person who understood me. 

excepted me for me.

I can not leave BECAUSE I AM

PROUD to be her friend!
