A Coward I Am Not

Poem by Scarlet .....

I know I can’t
make
you stay
but where
is your
heart

You left me
when I needed
you most
why couldn’t you
have just stayed
just to help
if even for
just
one night

I know I could have
tried to fight
to make you
stay

I shouldn't have
to fight
for you to be
at my side
for it makes
me realize
you are not
who I
thought you
were

I no longer
want you
at my side
is it that hard
for you
to understand

I was not
complete

I am now

I am independent
on my own

I am no longer afraid
to walk
this world
alone

I am no longer afraid
to keep living

I am always
awake or afraid
asleep or be dead

I asked you
before
where is you
heart
for mine was
with you
now it is not

I should not have
to fight
to get you
to love me
so now
it is not
you
I want now
at my side

I no longer want
anyone
at my side

I am no longer afraid
to walk this world
alone

I am no longer afraid
to keep living

I must choose
to be
awake or afraid
asleep or be dead
choices such

No longer inclined
to such am I
they are
mine

    I started to like your poetry. It's as natural as a waterfall from your heart. I love it. I understand your sorrow since I've experienced something similar. I believe you are a strong person and yes you are not a coward at all. The sky will be clear after the rain, U.U.(Report)Reply

    You are no coward, you face each day with a great deal of courage, not cowardice, i bet your a beautiful person were it counts, let it show, let it come out, no more thoughts of death, you are known, give people a chance and your self a chance to find what it is your looking for, listen to advise from your elders and friends, bring your family into your circle and thrive, O-Ho Osceola.(Report)Reply

    U.U.,
    That soul sounds like it is becoming more mature,
    be careful now ...
