Poem: Pass


By: Joi Maree Flowers

Because of the fear of returning to loneliness
  Once the shared closet becomes half empty

And the left side of the bed
Becomes cold

Because of the heart break that results
In days of tears being cried

Seclusion from the eyes of naysayers
And isolation from the warmth that awaits outside

Because the regret of bearing one's soul
Results from the revealing of secrets once kept sacred

By the one trusted with your life
The once known now formerly known as

Because the remembrance of one's name
Replays memories once made lovingly that can't now be erased

The name that once before brought joy
But now elevates the pressure of one's pain

Because the reason to not
Outweighs the reason to

By those hurt once or twice
Or more than a few times


Why love is better left standing alone
Without grabbing a hand passing it by to hold

Reasons enough

Why to it some say
