Poems on Sunday

Understand

I tried to rationalize

When you didn’t come home

I blamed it on your drinking

Overlooking that you had a phone

Sometimes I didn’t get calls

Or text, And I gave you an excuse

Not knowing all alone you where slowly tying a noose

Around the bad relationship or whatever I thought we had

If I would have really looked, I would have saw that it was bad

Sometimes I feel hurt, anger, joy

Defeat and somehow grand

There was a time when seemed impossible now I understand
