setting aside

by citrusmuse

i don't mind setting it aside
setting you aside
setting my feelings aside
i've done it
i've done it before
done it many times
yeah it hurts
pushing away
pulling away
moving away
i think, i've always been good at that
hurt me before you can
make you feel ok
because you can't, don't want to be with me
because of this, that, and the other
it's ok with me
i know detachment
lying to myself that it's ok
i think it's ok
but there are nights
sparing moments when i realize
i hurt
i hurt a lot
and i felt for you
i fell for you hard
yeah i pushed
yeah i pulled
yeah i moved away
i needed you like you once needed me
i needed you
because you felt good
made me feel good
make you feel good
the way you taste
the way you smell
the way your hand brushed my back
my energy surge
turning me
churning me
spinning me
spun me
so i moved
so i wouldn't be more hurt
because i knew you had to move on
because you can't, don't want to be with me
because of this, that, and the other.

i enjoyed the play on words.

"this, that and the other" was the poems downfall...common language.

The main issue that I have with this work is that there really isn't any juice, can you think of no adjectives to build upon the words, no colorful words other than, as redhead mentions, "this, that, and the other" to express your feelings on this loss? -- j.

an attempt to draw with words what is invisible for the eyes is always plausible
