Try Again - Poem by Lorene Kinsey

You ask if there is any way we could ever try again,
But two years of starting over finally brought me to my end.
My suffering and guilt, questions and anger,
have just died to my amazement.
Two years ago, I never thought I’d love another,
but here I am so proud to say, “I let go of that love.”
I never thought I’d be strong enough to ever let you go.
I thought I’d always blame myself, because you took your love away,
certain I did something so bad you just couldn’t bare to stay.
I’ve asked myself a hundred times if your love was just one day gone,
or if you finally discovered, that love was never there.
I always knew you’d say, “good-bye, ”
and send me on my way.
I never understood (an understanding as I was) ,
why you were strong when I was weak,
then at my worst you abandoned me.
For all the pain it caused, I can now say, “thanks, ”
my mind has become so strong, but somehow my heart is still weak.
Another broken heart later, and now you want me back,
I appreciate the offer, but I think I’ll have to pass.
