On The Edge Of This Road by Martie Hevia

No, I can’t let you do this to me again.
No, I won’t let you pretend to be my friend.
No, I will never trust your eyes again.
I will never smile, so freely,
so carelessly again.
~
No, I can’t find peace and
comfort in your arms… again.
No, I won’t let your well-rehearsed words seduce me again.
No, I will never give my heart and soul
to you… again.
I will never smile, so freely,
so carelessly again.
~
I can only run away from you now.
The tears distort all that may lie ahead
for me now.
Just let me close my eyes and
drown in my pain.
I’ll sit quietly here
on the edge of this road…
In the rain.
~
Don’t say that you love me anymore.
I can’t bear to hear you lie to me anymore.
Don’t say I’m the one, the only one
who made you feel…
Or that our love was unique
or the passion was real.
~
Please go away and don’t call out my name
Don’t whisper “I love you’s” –
It won’t be the same.
The past is all that we have,
as brief as it was.
It’s all that remains here –
That, and my pain.
~
I am reminded of too many sleep-away days.
Dreaming of porches and rocking chairs
and old age.
Realizing God doesn’t always listen
when one prays.
I promise myself I won’t let you
hurt me again…
~
As I quietly sit here…
on the edge of this road…
In the rain.
