Looking For A Cure - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Looking For A Cure
Date: January 21,2016

Stop calling with your senseless chat
I'm sorry, I won't go back to that
With so many goodbyes it all seems clear
That all your claims were insincere

I've tried so hard to quit the game
It's time for you to do the same
I don't know why we held so strong
To intentions that are clearly wrong

I guess I thought the years would find
A path to lead your heart to mine
But you'd rather live with false beliefs
Than to try to see inside of me

You never saw beyond your need
For tasteless trash, it's selfish greed
I never was the reckless kind
Till you stole my heart, and left me blind

I succumbed to your wicked spell
It dragged me to the depths of hell
It left my heart bitter and cold
Matched only by my frozen soul

I have no fight, no energy
To cling to hope or memories
All my passion, your words disgraced
You threw my love back in my face

To know that love wasn't your intent
Has filled my soul with malcontent
I was just a fool, who loved you still
Despite the way you make me feel

It'll take some time to forget the pain
I pray, the lessons will remain
I hope someday the future brings
The day that I don't feel a thing

Someday I'll pass you on the street
And the pain won't cut me near as deep
I'll smile, then look the other way
Cured of the ache feel today

    'It'll take some time to forget the pain
    I pray, the lessons will remain
    I hope someday the future brings
    The day that I don't feel a thing'

    wonderfully captured and expressed in simple brevity, a universal human experience
