My Thanks To Him - Poem by Ashley Turney

Thank you for not saying goodbye
Thank you for leaving me on standby
And above all thanks for all the unsaid things between us
Now that what’s done is done
I know you weren’t the one
I’ll be okay
It’s just another day
You had your chance
Just another opportunity you didn’t take
As I sleep I don’t want to wake
I wanna cry
Inside I wanna die
Because of this lie
The lie I told myself
Every time you left
I can still see your face
Reminding me of your embrace
The outline of me and you which I can trace
Black ribbons and lace
A time to mourn
The lost
Wish it didn’t have a cost
But in the end.
It did.
My trust,
My love
My dependence on you
Thank you for taking it away from me
Now that I see
I can’t go back to when all I needed was you
