I rise above you and all the pain you gave
I turn my back on you there’s nothing left to save
I won’t turn around when I walk out the door
And as I walk away our love will be no more
Red sunsets come and go as days are passing by
Clouds just drift along there’s no more tears to cry
I hold my head up high towards the sky above
I stop and wonder if there was ever love
The painful memories and tears I tried to hide
That telling look you gave each time I knew you lied
Soon unhappy memories will simply fade away
I’m looking forward now to a brand new day
Walking along the road on such a different track
I have set my course now there’s no turning back
No matter what you do you can look everywhere
This love that used to be is no longer there

Hello Shashi, thank you for your comment. I am looking forward to next weeks poetry too. I love reading all the entries, there are some very talented poets out there 🙂
Very, very nice my friend, I love it a lot!
Thank you ghosterb I am grateful for your comment xx
the ending pulled me in as it made me think of my own relationship at one time…..
Hi chimnese thank you xx
So strong your closing but you are right you can look everywhere and the love is not there
Hello Sarah, thank you xx
It’s sad when any relationship breaks down, but especially so for one with longevity like your first marriage.
Thankfully, you were able to move past the pain & hurt and found love again.
I wish you the very best today, tomorrow and always.
Thanks for sharing & for the visit too. Much appreciated.

Hello Andy, yes it was difficult but now I am glad that I finally made the decision. 😉
moving expression, looking forward to a new day, yeah, that’s a way to get over pain and love.
Thank you, yes it truly is 🙂 thank you
positive thoughts and imagery on loss and pain.
Thank you morning xx
So difficult to do and many don’t. They just go on suffering. Well put.
It’s oh so difficult to walk away from the pain inflicted by the one who doesn’t know how to love us. What a strong write! xoXox
Hi Kay Salady, yes it is very difficult to walk away. But it is good to know that once you make that step, a new life opens it’s doors to let you in and all your decisions from there are all yours 🙂
The hardest thing (I think) we humans ever have to do it learn how to let got. It hurts so much. Well done for rising above and finally meeting someone new to begin again. Lovely.
Hi Daydreamertoo Letting go is a hard thing to do especially after 23 years. I have moved on since those days thankfully and I am very happy in my 2nd marriage
Great views on that!
For some reason, I like this very much.For me its a happy piece,a piece where you are departing from some place that you were one unhappy in and making your way in to new horizons.Need I say more? Absolutely adored it!
Thank you carefreewanderer for your kind comment. I am glad you like this poem 🙂
painful departure piece, well done.
Thank you Jingle 🙂
So sad. Well written, but sad to see love die. I t reminds me of my poem, “A Thousand Angels Crying”. I think you’d enjoy that one.
Good one Jeanie!
Thank you Charles 🙂 I will take a look at that poem
the last stanza speaks volumes to me … I have been there … it was one of the hardest moves I ever made … glad it is far behind me … although the memory rears its head on occasion!! thank you for sharing!!
This was one of the hardest things I had ever done. It was when my first marriage ended after 23 years. Ten years later I met my husband and we have now been happily married for six years.
