Nemesis

Galloping through a rambled life
With her spirit carried in a saddlebag
Relishing the joy in her new voice
Finally, the master of her own choice

'Let's sing songs and say poems'
We chimed, way back then, huddled in
Our beds, once in need of being friends
Sadly along the way it ends

Rough roads buried our childhood pleasures
Excited now to share new found treasures
Until she reminds that I could have,
Should have, done better

Subtle messages of what lacks or the things
I should need, I fall down to skin my knees
She'll stand amused to watch me bleed
Then leave me alone to live my own dream

    A very sad, yet very inspiring poem about our relationship with our inner child, and how it changes over time. I really liked this poem, and I can relate to it. Very well expressed, Karen!...Thank you so much for the wonderful comments. And, I hope that you have a Happy New Year!

    I'm looking through your old writes Karen, as you have not posted new in a while. I think we learn to ignore people like this, different strokes for different folks, but some just can't see it. very well thought out and written. Take care,Richard

    So I see what you mean, dear. It's sad, but as Abdulha says here, you are better for her departure. Thanks for letting me know about this one. I enjoyed seeing it.

    Andrea, thank you for your thoughtful words. Have a lovely evening.. :)

    A sad pen you've pen, though your last stanza that stressed the solace you found in her departure brings the peace of mind you've found in pursuing what is best known to you as your best. I'm really happy for you. Well done Karen. Beautiful! ~AO
