Poem: Without HER

Without HER

By: Joi Maree Flowers

His dreams were revealed in detail
But it lacked one thing


She was excluded from his destiny
His tomorrows
As he planned to walk without her hand in his
For his itinerary held no space for her time
To be included

The punches of hurt
Felt through each heartbeat
The sorrow from rejection
Displayed in each fallen tear
SHE cried

As SHE saw forever with him
As her destiny
Unlike his
Included him

SHE so wanted his words to be a script
Recited to her in a nightmare
But she was awake
And this scene was very real

And unlike fictional tales

There were no words to be said
No actions to be taken
No rewind button to undo
His decision

For his words were spoken
And ended by a period

Weakened by disappointment
Accepted his fate

And from him
