Another Goodbye - Poem by Aiman Rathore

Joy and laughter
but had no resolve
inner peace, not at all
people and thoughts
of love and care
but on the inside,
was dark

I have now a shceme
but made a sacrifice,
so extreme
that my mind screams
and my nights go horrible
my mornings, not so bright
strange though it seems

I have inner peace
sorry i had to leave
but this was about me
you have all rights to hate me

but it's not like I did not wait
I waited all my life
going through so much
for something that was never mine
must be out of my mind!

SO, this is another goodbye
I hope it's the last one
I pray that you don't need me
I'll be glad if you forgive
and forget me
in tears but glad.

    these are very well-written, touching lines...and with the subtle pain lurching around, they make a splendid read... bravo.. (Report) Reply

    i can really relate to this...i liked the lines:
    'but it's not like I did not wait
    I waited all my life
    going through so much
    for something that was never mine'
