No more Goodbyes

Like autumn colors
I will not be here for long

Forgotten for a year
Until they search high & low
In Northern paradise
Come early September

Like status updates
You will give me your thumbs up
You may even give me your words

But, you will erase me

Replace me

Like tainted preacher who has their cake
At their “god’s” restaurant called, “Bulimia’s”
They will never be satisfied

They will preach Spanish sermons
While embracing separation anxiety
Forgetting His word
In valuing a friend

Like ghosts
They will haunt
But disappear when I look forward

They will cry
When I’m no longer around

Because
Like Serenity’s incipience
I let them go

Finding my way home

Finding my way home

My way home

© Drake J. Eszes

“And I’m done seeking treasure just to wake up in an early grave.  So I stopped right there and said, ‘Go all alone, cause I won’t follow’. This isn’t giving up, this is letting go. Out with the old dreams I’ve borrowed. The path I call, from here on out, will be my own. A path to take me home.” –Rise Against

    Drake, have travelled this path myself....letting go is difficult for one so entrenched in loyalty as myself...but when accomplished, horizons become much more vivid, satisfying...cool poem! Jimbo

    You're absolutely right. During the time when I wrote this, it wasn't so hard. But, it was still so disappointing. Some things & people should matter more...much love, Jimbo!

    Words have never been so true as what you have written here. I see the feelings that went into this.

    The saying goes: "You don't know what your missing until it's gone"! Nothing is appreciated more after it is no more.....may you never be taken for granted again Drake. Heartfelt write and remember home is where the heart is. Hugs

    Immense, so deep with a feeling of dispair. Such an emotional verse can't help but touch all who read. You give so much of yourself in this Drake.
