It Was Time

I just found this while looking for my birth certificate. I can tell it was typed on a typewriter...so you know it's old...shaddup all you youngins. Yall probably never typed on a typewriter before.

It's from many years ago...not even sure when this was done...




It was time



I never dreamed...it would be so easy, to finally walk on out the door...but I'm tired of tryin' to make you smile...and livin' everyday on trial...and tired of always bein' the one---who loved a little more.



It was time...

When you really get down to the bottom line, we never had the poetry...we just tried to make it rhyme...



It was time...

that we were over...it was time.

and now I know the emptiness I'm feelin' --- is more for what we missed than what we had...



But watchin' somethin' dyin' slow...

can hurt much more than lettin' go...and even whith the loneliness you know...

I'm almost glad...



Guess I wasn't right for you, and you weren't right for me...

and it doesn't pay to sell your soul...

just for company...



It's better bein' lonely....



It was time.

Gems are often stashed in places we rarely look. This was one of those rare gems, disguised as an emotional.

One.

These words are a gem indeed. D, you need to be published. Seriously! There are volumes of gay poetry which come out, submit your work. You have everything to gain.
