#PoetryLovers: Moving On (2016)

Happy to be releasing my first poem of 2016 which is called Moving On.

Thank you for all the love and support for my writing since joining WordPress and I hope you still feel the good vibes from the words I pen 🙂

Moving On

Moving along with the times ain’t no looking back,

Back at the fact that lonely never went away when you stayed,

They say never give up but does that mean wait for your love?

Above all there’s no more tears to shed, laying in bed with a clouded head,

Every dog has its day and yours has come,

Because moving on is the soul cleansing I need,

To breath fresh air again after being smothered by your deceptions,

Build new relations with meaningful dimensions that you will never understand,

At one point you were the man,

Say and do all the right things but as the novelty thinned so did the act,

Acting out when all you wanted was a way out,

I’ll never know why because even now you protect me with a lie,

When I can read between the lines and see your mind is elsewhere,

Your mind has another care in the world,

Yet you dare to tell me there’s always the future,

The future’s never promised but the present is here to be taken,

You can’t take me as I am but neither can another man,

You want my all but in return you drop the odd miss call and wait for me to come running,

Now I’m running away,

Away from this natural disaster they call a relationship,

I’m taking trips to higher places where the only distorted faces are those of my personality,

As it comes to grips with the changes you embedded in me,

The light at the end of the tunnel is finally showing me what I was meant to see,

That you were only a set up to identify what I really needed,

You probably thought I conceaded defeat but I’m waiting to find someone willing to meet half way,

Turn my grey days into great days and reassure me that better days are on the way,

Back to every move in everything I do and prove that passion is not only expressed through words,

But through actions and reactions to love that was lost with you.
