Leaving Now


Guest Post

by Amanda Eifert


This isn’t real, I cannot feel,

Your lies are fine, don’t make it real.

Your words remind me, what you did,

Your words hurt me within.

Keep your lies, no promises,

There’s no more compromises.

You don’t say it out-loud, your lips sealed,

Numb inside, I’ll never fully heal.



The music starts, covers silence,

I don’t want to hear your weak defense.

Broken promises shatter,

The shards so sharp scatter.

Didn’t mean the words you said,

I called you out and you fled.

Pretending you don’t hear me hence,

I’m leaving, no reprehending.


Look around!
