The only ticket sold is my own

I won't see you today
nor will I see you tomorrow
     or the day after

but I can still see your smile
and feel your laughter

falling in love
isn't always meant for two
I've turned a page to begin a new chapter

this is my solo performance
the only ticket sold is my own
I'm standing centre stage of this charade
picking up from where we ended

a dramatic exit, left in suspense
and I'm improvising
every next step

And what a frightening place that stage can be. Little us in the spotlight of new beginnings, where we hope that its a spotlight, despite it feeling like it could just as easily be an oncoming train. That stage can feel like the grand canyon is just a crack in the pavement.
Those first steps are usually baby steps, on tippy-toes, but as someone once said, every journey begins with a first step. Just keep that head held high...and stop imagining you are walking a tightrope. At worst, you always have the safetu net of the pavement catching you.
...says the voice of experience, who falls off the pavement on a daily basis. I'm amazed im still allowed out to be honest, bit at least ive stopped falling out of bed. :)

Always leave them wondering,
you can even skip,
and it will add to the mystery!
Best part is you knew to walk away.

Yes, that was the best part. :)
Thx Jon!
What a wonderful poem about moving on with life; cutting the ties that bind and leaving the past behind. Sometimes people come into our lives like sails for our dream boat...pushing us along and carrying us where we need to go. Other times we meet with an anchor and it simply weighs us down and keeps us from going anywhere.

Gee
Loved this.
Guess I'm lucky that I've never had a woman break my heart. Saying that if anything happened to my wife God only knows the mess I'd end up in

It's that kicking the dead horse thingy, only you have expressed yourself much more pleasantly.
Relationships can sometimes take a very rocky road.

thanks so much Chris!
Wow, you really blew this one out of the park! The angst is palpable, and so is the pain. You gave quite the closing, in improvising every step. Great delivery, Ana!
