Paul Tristram- A Poem

I Felt The Darkness Leave With You

Sometimes you’re blind
and too wrapped up in it
to realize why your life
has become nothing but shit.
The biggest albatross
around your neck can be mistaken
for the love of your life?
It’s all back to front
and upside down and sideways
when it comes to the emotions, I’m afraid.
I’ve seen the normally placid
become raving, vicious lunatics
and the sensible act like idiots.
They say that time heals
but that’s not the best part.
No, when the emotions stop
and you can finally see clearly, again
that’s the miracle worth waiting for.
When the fighting and unpleasantness
have become old history
and you realize that it wasn’t you, after all.
For they are doing the very same thing
to whoever they are now with.
Then it’s time to smile, brightly
you got away, you made it through again.
The tide has turned in your favour
she’s gone and Good Riddance!
