Gone In A Flash - Poem by Kevin Carney

Gone in a flash…
Out the door into the dark of night.
So alone, she doesn’t know it yet.
She would fight it; she decided to give in to it all.
Choices it’s a matter of what to do.

She looked at it all not giving it too much thought.
Suffocated and disillusioned she thought she was.
Not taking a stance for herself was her mistake.
Looking for a quick fix, not looking at the consequence.
Out into the cold she went, thinking she had just won it all.

Petulance is her disease, dictating her actions tonight.
Blinded by the frustration and rage too many years it built up inside.
Don’t waste your time to change her mind….
It is already made up, she wants to throw it all away.
I don’t know what to say anymore, I gave it my best shot…

I pray that she will see the light, and come back…
Can she survive it in the end, all alone thinking no one cares?
It’s not a pretty road ahead; she thinks it’s going to get better.
I fear it’s the final good bye, she doesn’t know how much I care.
So hurt I feel, after all the times we spent, she didn’t believe in me.

Frustration and fear I feel, making me wanting to throw up.
I wish I could hold her and not let her go, it’s no use.
I know it’s been bad for her, its haunting her, torn apart she has become.
Don’t know how I could ever fix it for her; she doesn’t want it to be that way.
Words that maybe could have been said, never did she want to hear.

She told me all the things she thought I wanted to hear.
It was a way of humoring me, making it easier for her to get away.
So dark the night is and all I can see is you leaving this way….
Good byes that maybe should have been said, never will they ever come.
Maybe I been used, I kind of feel that way right now.

I had always believed in you, taken you for who you are…
Never did I give up on you; I would fight the world for you.
Such a complicate web you spun, it’s not too late to get out of it.
I am still thinking of you, what a shame it seems you are throwing it away.
I know you are thinking life sucks so much, you’re at the point of no return.

If only you could open your eyes and clear those tears away.
If only you could look into the dark of the night, think about the loneliness ahead.
It’s still time to stop before you take that step; there will be no turning back…
I’ve said all I can say, it was the only thing I could, never did you hear a word of this.
You’re going to take the step, and leave this way, into the darkness of night.

    Suffocated and disillusioned

    sometimes when a single step is taken, there is no going back
