A poem of pain

I’d rather not commit to avoid the pain
I’ve experienced from being abandoned.

I’m going to heal.
Release the agony I once harbored
And stop allowing rejection to devour me

20 years of chasing your love.
Only to receive it in an empty hush.
20 years of running away,
and pursuing failures…
