Denial - Poem by Daniel Murphy

I went one day to see and hear.
Came back, closed eyes, with only fear.

Explain you come and reasons why.
I slammed door, say goodbye.

Keys ignition, engine start.
Sped up highway like a dart.

Tears in eyes, pain and hurt.

You're forgotten, tears have gone.
Engagement ring now in pawn.

Only a scar and memory a burden.
Our relationship will never furthen.

Finding you with someone else.
What a shock, deep hurt I felt.

Now a new life, joy I feel.
Your pictures I rip and tear and peel.

May be forgotten, but will never forgive.
It's you that's forgotten, so I can live.
