I Stepped Away Without Any Follow
Today, I chose to walk away,
well, I suppose I wasn’t alone,
perhaps it was me trying to catch up,
though either way,
I was left alone this day.
I stepped away from beauty,
not knowing any resolve, resolution,
though I do still involve
my heart in every motion.
Today I discovered there is a new
emotion in my world,
one that will cause me to reflect
rather than build upon my fantasy.
When the reality of love,
returns to mystique
it will be only all of my strength
to let go,
to make allowance for a freedom
beyond the sweet reckoning
when we might laugh,
when contagion meant
a certain intoxication,
Today, I chose to walk alone.
