Leaving - Poem by Peggy Dotson

I say that I'm leaving you
I have my bags packed
I'm halfway towards the door
This time I'm not looking back.

I tell you this is the last time
I will never see you face
No more running around on me
I'm finally leaving this place.

I say I've had enough
I'm leaving yes I'm gone
I know that it's time
For me to be on my own.

I'm walking towards the door
Yes, I'm almost there
And then here you come
Completely out of nowhere.
You grab both my bags
and put them on the floor
Then you look me in the eyes
And say I've heard this before.

Oh well. Maybe next time I'll have the courage.
