Redundant Lies

Redundant Lies

A Poem by WillaDanvers

Wasn't in the best frame of mind when I wrote this one

None pause to deny the fact, 
Hiding their truths in avoidance, 
Thinking I can't see those little things, 
Showing everything they won't say, 

Only means to be that small chapter, 
Bye comes so soon after that timid hello, 
I'm quite accustomed to this method, it's okay, 
Soon hello will simply be redundant, 

Passing lives, I'm only a blur,
You won't even remember me soon, it's okay, 
I wasn't important, you'll see that soon, 
As our combined stories are coming to close, 

I'll push you away before you realize, 
You have other friends, you don't need me, 
You won't notice, painful it'll not be, 
One day you'll simply look and I'll not be here, 

But it was nice knowing you, loving you, 
You were a sister to me, part of my life, 
Thanks for keeping me company, for a while, 
I'll treasure the things we had, shared, 

Some people aren't meant to share love, 
Just passing characters in earth's ways, 
It's okay to accept it now, I figured it all out, 
Some relationships don't survive the storm.

Author's Note

Life is more about loving that one true love. It's about having and losing friends, family and people that were once a part of your world.

We meet many people on our journey through life. We don't take them all with us. Some if we are lucky are there to hold our hand on that long journey, others dissipate into the ether of time barely leaving a mark. I enjoyed this poem.

I am a part time poet, who's words sometimes ring true but otherwise have only gathered information from music, stories or a singular feeling. Anything really. Enjoy the words, and leave a few kin.. more..
