Topic: anguished


The choices were so onerous,
painful to conceive
everyone had a part to play,
and mine was to leave.

I packed all my belongings
between the truth and the lies,
and shed my former self amongst the
tears and the sighs.

So many roles and strategies
in the games that we play;
we think the rules are set,
but they change every day.

Nothing last forever,
some tokens wonít redeem
the masks and the avatars
are all but a dream.

The choices were so onerous,
painful to conceive
everyone had a part to play,
and hers was to grieve.
