Poem: survived

By: Linda M. Crate

Abandoned love
i‘ll be a star in
someone else’s sky
forever i‘ll wonder why
had to be this way,
but heaven knows
i‘m safer to never know
that answer;
so i‘m not going to
make myself sick
over you anymore—
burn with
a light of kindness in
someone’s heart that is not yours
dancing over them the
happiness you wouldn’t allow me to
grant you
because you never loved me
i was just good
for your ego,
and so when you were
through you
destroyed me and left me
gasping for air
submerging my heart beneath
the winter’s flood of your
eyes, i almost drowned, but
somehow i survived.
