    No Going Back

    The past is a distant memory,
    the future uncertain.
    I try to live in the now,
    but past lies and disappointments interfere.
    I want to recapture what I thought we once had.
    I'm tire of being taken for granted,
    tired of being placed on the back burner,
    and tired of not feeling alive when I'm with you.
    I've built a wall around myself
    to prevent you from hurting me any further.
    I've stopped expecting you to change,
    stopped expecting to be treated as
    the special person I know I am.
    If it ends I will feel no sense of regret
    because I know that it wasn't my lies
    that brought everything crashing down.
    I don't know what the future holds for us,
    don't know if there will be an us.
    What I do know is that I deserve better
    and I won't settle for anything less.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
