Melanie C. Campos ~ MahTame
Can you truly say from thy heart good-bye?
This is your innermost desire to be gone forever?
I cannot conceive this to be a meanness of thee
What was so good, to be thrown away to thy wind!
Aye, dear one, it was only a moments interlude
Beautiful in your company, lovely indeed!
Grievously seeping into mine flustered heart
Continuous thinking of what I might have done
What purpose did one have in mind in this decision?
How misleading happenings from thy person!
Overwrought mind; discomposed feelings
Did I make love to you through poetic words?
Did I present myself in a forward fashion?
Did I frighten you so much to have this happen?
I know I have said my goodbyes with reluctance
Can’t seem to stop composing words of thee
Perhaps it would have been better to be struck
From shiny, real daggers deeply into my soul
And left bleeding to pass on to another realm
How foolish I have been; exposed innocently
Cautiously endeavoring always to be careful
Not wanting to hate, not wanting to think bad
Of this one who has been looked upon as good
Who has been to many hells and back again
Surviving for purposes of living and loving life
