IN THE DUST

I was left in the dust
Forgotten …. ignored
You were distracted… 
Said you were  bored.

A lovely sweet face
A shiny  new coin
I knew for sure
What was going on.

I looked away
Did not want to cry
So tired of excuses
Such shameful …sad lies. 

You packed up your bags
Took all of your things 
You walked out the door
Won’t see you again.

I sat alone
I cried for weeks
I whined….. carried on 
Then dealt with my grief. 

Years have gone by
Life has moved on
I’m better off
Now that you’re gone.
