Distrust

by sschubert

Copyright ©2010 Stephanie R Schubert

I am cutting my losses
Wanting to say my
Goodbyes

I can't even really feel
The tears in my eyes

When you begin
At the end
There is nothing to go
Back to again
And so you know
That I know

It was done
Before I took my first breath
Think of the peace
I find where
I do
and
Know that
This came before
you
Before
me
Before
I came along
There was still this same place

This same space
Devoid of Life

What was taken from me
Time to move on
And see what else
Might be

the poem in its totality is so very deep and even compecated, but the last two stanzas are what effected me most. 10
