Done

I warned you from the beginning when I say I am done or walk away without a word. There is nothing you can say to keep me by your side. 

So be strong, accept it and walk away. I’m done.

No matter the pretty words you try to whisper in my ear I no longer care and am ready to close the door on this old chapter in my life.

So be strong, accept it and walk away. I’m done.

No matter the gifts you can place at my feet I no longer want you and I am ready for a blank page that’ll give me pause before I begin a new chapter to bring joy to my life. 

So be strong, accept it and walk away. I’m done.

No matter the size or expense of those glorious bright flowers keep them at the ready to try and fool the next person in your lineup. I didn’t need or want things, just honesty. 

So be strong, accept it and walk away. I’m done.

No your caresses will not keep me locked in to you. Nor will your poetic words, keep those lies in your arsenal for the next fool in your life.

So be strong, accept it and walk away. I’m done.

For a needy fool I am not. What I am is smart, warm, beautiful, gifted, kind, willing to go the distance and stand by the side of an honest love. 

So be strong, accept it and walk away. I’m done.

You lost the privilege of all that is me when you decided to hide the truth. You lost the beauty of honest conversation, of companionship, of sweet whispers in your ear, of promises of a never ending love, of caresses by sun, moon, or candle light. 

So be strong, accept it and walk away. I’m done. 

No I won’t remark on how you changed, answer your calls, reply to your letter, acknowledge your presence, respond when you call my name, explain my cold and distant behavior, or question why you did it. 

So be strong, accept it and walk away. You are done.

    The repetition nails the mood. You can all but hear the mental slam of the door closing it off forever.
