What took me so long….

I was blinded by
the things you could not see
the way you closed your eyes
and turned your back on me

I was wounded by
the many things you said
the way you spun your words
and wrote them in my head

I was saddened by
the things that never change
the way you think things are
how they were rearranged

I was surprised by
the things that went so wrong
the way you reeled me in
then said I don’t belong

I was silenced by
the days and years gone by
the way we disappear
yet never say good-bye

I was thinking…
