that day

May 28, 2013 at 2:50 am 9 comments

the day he walked away

is the day i turned to stone.

my heart barely beating;


as a faint


distant drone.

though time is said to heal;

lessen the pain,

this remedy has done nothing

to obliterate my ache.

sometimes i wish

to turn back the clock –

reverse decisions made,


time is cruel –

moves only forward

leaving regrets

which slowly fade.

that day he walked away

is the day i turned to stone.

my heart no longer beating –

only frigid




that was then and this is now,

with tools wrapped in the palm of my hands;

chiseling away

to find a smarter heart –


a much stronger self

in which to stand.
