Walk Away

Walk Away

A Poem by Colette

Once again, another man has turned his back on me.


I watch U walk away and I take a photo of U with my mind
Your face
looking back at me
Your backpack
as though this is for good like a cartoon
only sad

I watch U walk away and I know
that this might be the last I see U
in person
Just Instagram
As I live vicariously through everyone’s lives
but mine

U look back at me with a bright smile
A face that I already adore
And I close the door
And I try to shut down my mind
with a hit of MJ
and a few sips of Blue Agave

Cuz I’ve got the blues
like I always do
It’s not a depression
It’s a sadness
a yearning
for what everyone has but me

I watch U walk away in your blue shirt
Me in mine
I can’t wait to take it off
Wish I could change my favorite color
I wish I could change my mind

I go months and years between lovers
and I remain hopeful for that energy
that only monogamous birds share
For that colorful display of affection
For the song, and the food. For the security
of knowing you’ll come back

I watch U walk away and I mourn
the relationship that will never be.

"The poet...is not nearly so concerned with describing facts as with creating images and establishing mental connections." from the book "Uncertainty" by David Lindley I'm in love with metaphors.. more..
