Quit

I quit
done shouldering the blame
for this busted love affair
tremble under a weight too heavy
to carry all alone
Took more than me
both kept piling up
a mountain of wrongs
to build a goodbye
You own up to yours
'cause it's time for me
to carry only my own
Have to dampen down this burn
ease up on the ache
by taking off some guilt
I'm done being the villain
in a love that couldn't last

  2. especially love these lines -
    You own up to yours
    'cause it's time for me
    to carry only my own

    guilt is too painful an emotion and too heavy a burden.. I remember reading long ago - do not recall the book unfortunately - that we need to learn to let go of two things - guilt about the past and worry about the future... that will definitely help us

  4. Thank you! It is a great place to be when you are letting go of baggage that was never really yours to carry in the first place. I am at least working on it. Now if I could only tackle worrying about the future.

    1. Sadness and relationships are often the elements for creating poetry. You expressed very well the feeling of sadness, anger and disappointment.Thanks for taking part in the ABC meme.

    This speaks to me so much. I went through a time when I couldn't understand what happened until I accepted my own faults. It was the hardest thing I have ever done to say those out loud. Now I am at peace no matter what the other person does. Or so I would like to think. Either way I feel,

  7. ...yes, worrying about the future is my unnecessary burden. Why do I carry this with me when I know there is no need? !!
