Starting Anew

The sentimental feelings
Keeping of souvenirs
 When she sees his name in bright lights
Without an explanation he stayed away
Didn’t take her calls
Now she sees he’s name 
In every tabloid
On the cover of every magazine
With a beautiful red head at he’s arm

It was barely a month ago when he lay on her bosom
Listening to the rhythm of her heart’s beats
He played her 
For al these months of loving embrace
Their flame filled kisses
Casting shadows on the wall

Advising him and comforting him
When his world came crashing down
He didn’t want to speak about his life
Except for his work and the stresses thereof 
She was insecure each time she asked
To think that she actually believed what he said
Now that she knows the truth
It was time to let go
Start a new life

    Such a poignant and honest poem about dedication denied. Excellent write. Always looking for fellow S/African P/Soup poets to support. Welcome to the club. xx
