Foolishness - Poem by Janet Mulligan

Yes it's me who has been so blind
What I saw could of stood the test of time
And in my haste I begged on my knees
But I couldn't see the Forrest for the trees
There it was staring me in the face
A broken promise and true disgrace
Had I the chance to change my ways
I would of held on longer, tighter, and not release
Now it's not enough to pretend
Blindfold me not this time round again
I miss my friend and what we had
I miss your lovely face and being glad
I hate the memories that make me sad
Without my better half with me
There is no joy nor feelings of glee
Why did you cut out and run?
Why did you take away our fun?
Who am I to blame anyone
It's my fault and it's weighing a ton
In my heart and soul I will never be done
How do I forgive the one I cannot escape
I had the chance but I was late
Will this pain ever subside
Or will I always become like you and hide?
It feels as if you up and died
I wish I had no grounds to lie
I wish I could of stared you right in the eyes
But instead I wore my disguise
And it caused your demons to rise
