Gracefully (A Poem About Walking Away)

Gracefully (a Poem About Loving and Leaving)

Watch… as I walk away
Gracefully

Refusing to stand in the thick quicksand beneath my feet
Sinking deeper and deeper into a life of loneliness
Foolishly walking blindfolded through the deceptions of love

Packing up the memories, folding them neatly, and simply moving on
Gently returning to you the shirt, the toothbrush, and the ingenious web of lies
Emerging from the darkness, freed by the truth

Watch… as I walk away
Gracefully
