realization

                    Empty bottles left laying on the table
                    candle burning low
                    She lying in a drunkened  stupor,
 trying to drink away how she misses him so

                 There's a jukebox in the corner playin love songs
                   she's played his favorite one a thousand times
                 It's one more memory she's trying to hold onto
                when lonely becomes more then  just a state of mind.
               
                she still carries the last letter he wrote her
                 the one where he's telling her goodbye
                 but it's hard for her to read between the tear-stains
                 but remembering what it said still makes her cry.
                
                 his wedding ring still hangs on her keychain
                 more then once she's tried throwing it away
                but everytime she works up the nerve to do it
                 her heart begs , please hold on it one more day
                
                in the house they used to share still hangs a picture
               tho' years have caused parts of it to fade
                she remembers the day that it was taken
                and the vows and promises they made.
               
                now the rooms only hold the memories
              and silence only echos in the hall
                  so she leaves  behind the past that she remembers
                  hanging there lifeless on the wall
                 
                 she leaves the ring laying on the counter
                  along with his memory
                  with tears in her eyes she says i love you 
                  but in her heart she knows this is how it has to be
                  
                    she notices the for sale sign on the front lawn
                    now everything is finally said and done
                     she walks away not looking back just  remembering
                     the love shwe use to call her own......

I realized I can not live in the past, but gotta keep moving to the future which is unknown. But I realized life goes on. Great poem

It's a hopeful piece. Leaving the ring, accepting loss. New beginnings leave you raw and torn. Good poem.

Divorce is always hard...Especially on the children. This is a very well written poem. PS I love the pic of the baby. :) Kool

Very touching. Grate meter but you need to use word check before you publish. Again, I read that I am not the only one who identifies with this lady. Changing her inviroment really does help. Thanks for the read.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
