Since Youve Been Gone- A 24 Year Old Poem

Since you’ve been gone….
	The flowers have lost their color
		The sun refuses to give its light
			The moon weeps in her sorrow
				And days have turned into night
					Since you’ve been gone

Since you’ve been gone…
	The birds sing a mournful requiem
		The wind moans at the windowsill
			The sea threatens and billows
				The starlight has grown suddenly dim
					Since you’ve been gone

Since you’ve been gone…
	My world has crumbled down
		The people laugh at my pain
			My strength has withered away
				My tears mix with the rain
					Since you’ve been gone

Since you’ve been gone
	I’m haunted by the beauty of your smile
		I count the endless seconds and days
			I moan your name to my bedroom walls
				I wander around in an endless maze
					Since you’ve been gone

Nothing, no nothing has been the same…
Since you’ve been gone

Eileen Manassian
Circa 1991- 1992

I know there are some changes that need to be made to this, but I wanted to share this with you as I wrote it when I was about...24ish. I wrote it for my then boyfriend who is now my husband. He is the only man who has ever made love to me. I've known him since we were 12....

Don't Look Back Track

You played your pipe for me to dance,
as puppet master, worked the strings,
but today my heart will pirouette;
I am giving back the gold nose ring.

Last night I saw just how it is
Between yourself and naive me;
you are the wolf, I am the lamb
always destroyed  in repartee.

You think I cannot live alone
without your condescending reign;
you won't hear Arrivederci play,
I won't come back to Rome again.

This love train has left the station;
It is speeding down "don't look back track."
Goodbye to disappointing love; 
I'm moving on to be exact.

Goodbye, Good Riddance! (Co-written with James Fraser)

With no toilet seats carelessly left propped up
Oh, now I can be such a comfortable pup
Please take your Playboys straight out that open door
Then shut it quickly; I can take no more!
 
    Be gone with you, take all your shoes
    Your hairspray, make-up and your girly blues
    Three weeks of the month you loved me fair
    For the other week, I lived in fear
 
MY shoes?  Why you foul beast!  Your odor eaters
Didn't work!  Your smelly boots rest in sewers
Where they belong with that greasy hair goo
That left ugly stains on pink pillows once new
 
    Your pants were too tight, I couldn't get them off
    I can now wear my own; no longer you'll scoff
    And as for your cooking my health has improved
    Your name on the rent book, phew! finally removed
 
The credit card tab from your pub is gone now, too
That hussy barmaid can deliver it to you
And your shavings that clogged up my bathroom sink
Will be mailed to your mistress fast as you can blink
    
    At least she knew how to look after a man
    In bed with you was like a flash in the pan
    At least barmaid Betty purred when this Highlander taunted
    She was sensuous, delectable and she knew what she wanted
 
I'll remember you most when viewing pond scum
You sure were a loathsome son of a gun
I'm leaving this pit, too, so what the heck?
I'll send a new address for the alimony check
 
     You'll get your money like you earned it before
     Dancing naked on the pole in the floor
     I took you in, clothed, cared and fed
     But it wasn't me that was in your bed

Goodbye


Our time together over now
We could not grow in shade
Pale and fragile we emerged
Trying the commitment made

So our paths go different ways
But I leave you a kiss or two
Blown on the breezes of regret
I bid you dear a fond adieu

END OF TIME


Blood-eyes shutting bluntly Slicing twilight of May, Fingers numb quietly To search what's far away. And as threadbare evening Bathes the darkness of night, Remembrance from a dream Soar where gray winds alight. Blue moments shrink on hours Within cold edge of time, This love rakes choked flowers Without need to align. The piercing of thorns does sting Where stars can never go, Questions void of meaning What moon will never know. I adored all your ages Trying to hide the shade, So that sweet exchanges Will never ever fade. But what is forever Without the vow of grace? My lips bleed and quiver Upon farewell's embrace. Rhyme Battle , Juli- Michelle 10/3/13

Freed

Through my eyes, he sees his true self
and is disgusted by what he sees
Citing vulgar obscenities one moment 
and then the next desperate pleas

He knows he is morally wrong
and that I could never forgive
He compromised my health!
Now with himself he has to live

Integrity he has not a ounce
Compulsive liar, I found out!
Was he born without a conscience?
To intentionally hurt, a heart he is without!

I'm glad that I found out what he's about
He would have sent me to an early grave
I know karma will one day find him
and he will get back all that he gave

My guardian angel guided me
Showed me what I failed to see
All my nagging doubts have been answered
I finally found the truth to set me free.

Never Compromising

Never Compromising


My heart has moved on and tears have been shed.
Patience spread thin, relationship is dead.
When I talk you don't respond, withdrawn!
Tears have been shed and my heart has moved on.

Love was not enough, so much for destiny!
Tough, walking on eggshells is misery!
This life together has gotten rough
So much for destiny, love was not enough!

Never compromising, always a fight
the times I get the urge to write!
Constantly struck over-analyzing!
Always a fight, never compromising

Mind is wandering, strangers to conquer,
to much time has already been squandered!
Suffering has passed, now prospering!
Strangers to conquer, mind is wandering!!

Saying Goodbye Was Hard



I dearly miss my friends at The Glen Where we spent eight very happy years Never realized how happy they were Each day was filled with good cheer Friends galore, lots of things to do It was our choice to join in or not Help was there, if we ever needed it The friendships were over the top The choice to sell up and move away Was certainly a difficult decision Financially things got overwhelming So the logical choice was written Truly wish we could have stayed forever But sadly it just wasn't in the cards I'll always remember all the good times Saying goodbye was oh so hard! <3 <3 <3 © Jack Ellison 2013

Goodbye Heartache

What have I done? 
Have I thrown it all away? 
Can I ever get it back? 
Has my life gone astray?

Questions with no answers
Confusion my only friend
I keep hoping to find me
It’s like spitting in the wind

I look all around me 
I see you standing there
But nothing that you do
Shows me that you care

One minute I think I see it
A love so pure and true
Then as I blink I realize
There’s nothing here but YOU

You want me for what I give 
And use me for all I do 
Nothing I’ve ever wanted
Seems to be important to you

It was a simple promise
A vow from within my soul
Now I’m trying to find myself
But feeling very alone

As you sleep I hear the sighs
Born within the man I know
Wanting me to be different
Accepting me; OH NO

I have given everything 
To make this marriage work
But now I feel I must move on
No matter how it hurts

Goodbye to the heartache
So long to the pain
It’s time to find the little
Of my heart that still remains.

October Fire

Dancing smoke
black as night
floats above flames
burning bright
twisting wind
spreads the fire
fueling life
to dark desire
the nights are dark
with moonless skies
shadows see all
with empty eyes
fallen leaves 
make trees bare
the flame still burns
but the heats not there
blazing touch
meets hearts of frost
the burn feels sweet 
but then it's lost
now hands of ash 
reach out once more 
for October Fire
as they did before

Goodbye, Hello

Five years come and gone without your heart on the line.
 Your voice has almost chased away all the sanity left in my brain.
Somehow you take up residence where there is a "no vacancy" sign.
 It still fathoms me at how easy this all was for you to feign.

I am so tired of trying to understand all these childish notions.
 True love is and always will be nothing more than a fairy tale.
I may have had better luck had I used Tarot cards and potions.
 To grieve for our horrible marriage I shall wear the blackest veil.

It seems as if I was a wife, but you were never ready to do your part.
 You can't have it both ways, either choose the wrong way or the right.
Why doesn't it feel wrong to you to toy with another person's heart?
 A marriage takes work from each partner and I no longer wish to fight.

I thought this was forever and I loved you more than you'll ever know.
 You turned the once warm feelings I had for you to hard stone.
I am no longer in love with you and I'm sorry I now have to let you go.
 Sadly, as I always suspected I was in this marriage all alone.

Orange Busses

Poem about Sudbury, Ontario, Canada


I remember orange busses
if I'm showing my age.
When Sudbury's fleet
was the best and the rage.

I remember them coming
while I stood at the stop.
They were bright, they were bold
and the colour went pop.

I remember them ending
when the day finally came,
when it seemed one was left
by the highway in fame.

Hung

Our hearts can't touch, our minds deflect
Absurd conclusions, I'll regret
Breaking up so many times
Your reasons do not rhyme

I think I better off this way
I love you, that's what i will lay
Rupturing my soul, hope that I can
Last breath. . Goodbye. . 'til we meet again

Fallowed Heart

If truly One heart we share
Upon this curse, we'd never stare
From songs of Love, I've long shied
Now wick stings the wax, we hold dear

If truly One heart we share
Why does your pulse beats, when mine pause ?
Colds of the north pulls me with force
Yet gravity bullies this cause

If truly One heart we share
These doubts should never have lived
Your tender smile, my heart long grieved
Cloaked lies were the truth we believed

If truly One heart we share
Why does  'western Sun' fuel this fear
When roses grows on forlorn graves
Lillies defied strained thoroughfare

If truly One heart we share
kindling kiss, miles shouldn't deny
To this poem, flaming Ink feigns dry
Yet shallow end seems so near

If truly One heart we share
Fallowed acres shall thrive someday
In destined paths, and arms that care
'ever I've wished I belong here

Goodbye For A Season

Goodbye to my bestie,
My lover, Husband,
To someone I never wanted,
But without, I can't stand.

Farewell to my happy,
The kind without reason,
To my truly better half.
Hello to lonely season.

I wish it not to last long,
But the blink of an eye,
Before we say hello again,
And give us one last try.

My Worst Goodbye

We watched the sunset one day
On the porch, filled with bliss.
Driven by love, I leaned in,
And we shared a kiss.

I looked and stared
Into her deep brown eyes,
And we promised not to tell
Each other any lies.

She started to cry and asked
How long I will love her.
I said I always have,
And that I would love her forever.

Her tears continued falling
No matter what I did try.
She looked into my eyes
And told me goodbye.

I asked her what she meant.
She replied she had to move;
She said she would love me forever
As long as I'm here to love.

We spent our last night
In each other's arms
On a hilltop under the stars
Until the roosters raised their alarms.

She pulled me close,
And I held her tight.
Our last walk home was hard,
Because Despair's full strength we had to fight.

When we arrived
At our parting place,
I took her hand in mine, and wiped
The fresh tears from her face.

She said she love me,
And, without a hint of bliss,
I said I loved her too,
And we shared our final kiss.

The Long Goodbye

For months on end I've felt detached
I stay so damned confused
I don't know how to deal with this
afraid what I might lose

My children have been whispering
some words behind my back
Their faces showing deep concern
afraid what I might lack

I can't remember anything
Dear God what do I do?
It seems as though my mind has gone
I know that can't be true

I wish that Jane were still with me
she'd know just what to do
I hope this all will go away
please help me see this through

I Just Don't Know How to Say Goodbye

I never had problems talking to you before.
I never was unable to look you in the eye.
But the thing I'm saying now, I never said before--
I just don't know how to say goodbye.

I just don't know how to say goodbye,
For every time I try to say it, I just wanna cry.
Every time I hurt you more, a little of me dies,
Now I just don't know how to say goodbye.

The howling winds of destiny have blown our love away,
And we can't get it back, no matter how we try.
You can't give me a reason to make me want to stay,
But I just don't know how to say goodbye.

FREE CEE it is time to say good cry

sometimes it's easy not to cry when you say goodbye because you've taken enought
times when times and time spent together gets too rough 
days that pass by after nights of frustration and wide eyes
sometimes it's easy to smile after a litany of goodbyes

sometimes it's time to say that the time for good times are over
and there are just too many mountains which lead to dried up clover
just close the door to a bore and move on to the next conquest 
because sometimes saying goodbye is undoubtedly what's best

sometimes times mean too much work to stay where you are
so you move on to the next sparkling star
until that star grows dull and falls from the sky
and again it the time to say an easy goodbye

sometimes annoyance is an avoidance one must deal with in the end
and two make too many mistakes for either one to defend
so you stand up with a strengthened spine and get on with what comes next
because i can preach on how to say goodbye easily by chapter and text

so long honey, i wish i could say it's been a gas
but darling sometimes love becomes a test you can't pass
so you look over all the wasted time and years
and say goodbye without shedding any tepid tears

Goodbye

You broke my fxcking heart 
I should have known from the start 
You never meant a word you said 
Why'd you have to fxck with my head? 

I thought you loved me 
My mistake, I couldn't see 
That it was all one big lie 
I can't believe you made me cry 

So now there's nothing left to say 
You're in my past like yesterday 
Moving on is what I'll try 
As I say to you "Goodbye."

Only Thirteen

The day it starts, leaving at 6 am
Walking to my car, everyday it begins
This windy morning, the rustling sound
I look and see a flyer appear on the ground

She was only thirteen,
Been missing a week
Brown hair and blue eyes
And freckled cheeks
Last seen on a night
When she went to the store
Last word was goodbye 
As she walked through the door

My heart in my mouth
She’s my daughter’s age
Gave feelings of sadness
A sense of rage
The thought of a baby
A lamb with the wolves
Sent shivers of fear,
Thoughts knowing, no good

She was only thirteen,
Been missing a week
Brown hair and blue eyes
And freckled cheeks
Last seen on a night
When she went to the store
Last word was goodbye 
As she walked through the door

My prayers for her family
And all of her friends
Good thoughts and kind wishes
Are all I can send
I’ll spend my day hoping
While doing daily tasks
That she will return safely
That is all that I ask

If there’s a Lord up in heaven
I believe, yes, there is
Then help this poor family
And grant me my wish
I pray that she’s fine now
Maybe just lost on the way
And hope she’s not taken
In a mere awful way

She was only thirteen,
Been missing a week
Brown hair and blue eyes
And freckled cheeks
Last seen on a night
When she went to the store
Last word was goodbye 
As she walked through the door

It’s been three whole months now
No sign of this girl
The parents’ only child
They lost their whole world
That poor missing girl
On the flyer on the ground
Just where did you go?
Why can’t you be found?

Goodbye to Dust

I have had alot of fun learning about how to write a poem or too,
But God has decided for someone to remain as dust along with you,
Now two will be holding hand on that very big Jesus judgment day,
For sending me lies that the bet was not given or sent their way

Enjoy your STAY

FREE CEE proof of and eighty proof goodbye

  PROOF OF AN 80 PROOF GOODBYE

I realize that you are the boss
well tonight was par for the mother fuc*ing course
you know your kisses send this man to the sky
But now you can kiss the me and the next day goodbye

you took me out of the darkness like a night without a moon
yet if you've been praying I leave the answer to your prayer is coming soon
I asked you a question quite frankly easy to answer me
so that's why your wish is going to come true and once again become free

tomorrow the iron bars will be open wide
because i've run out of place for my tears to hide
just like that this man will disappear
and thereby make the answer to your dreams become crystal clear

this was a night tailor made for a dream to end
because you made to many frayed edges to ever mend
I asked you for a favor but you said you needed to go to bed
so I was certain you'd just pull the blanket over your head

i've taken so much sh*t from you I can no longer cry
and this is an 80 proof night that proves it's time to say goodbye
but for as long as I can recall you've always been the boss
so what you did tonight was simply par for the course

I recall when we used to discuss the delight of tomorrow
now i'm with a woman bent on sequestering our dreams in a land of sorrow
as of now my relationship with you is one of retrograde remorse
because what you did tonight was par for the course

all you had to do was answer the question I posed
but just out of spite you kept your lips well closed
I and all our friends know that all you've made me do is cry
so that's why this is an 80 proof night perfect to say good bye
                             goodbye

Goodbye school days

Goodbye School days
A hot tear is burning my eye
For jolly school days start to fly
Leaving me lone in a dark way
And lovely friends will be away

My heart can never say goodbye
And let my soul about to die
Without you I will be as hay
And to fast days an easy prey 

I will miss you- the shining sky
With no help or even supply
But our school days will be my ray
That can guide me on a dark day

I will never lose you, my eye
Nor your shine can I ever deny 
Like boats we may sail away
But we will anchor in our home bay

Written by (Mr. Sherif) for Emirati School Students
With my best wishes

GOODBYE GAIL

(Dedication: For Gail Angel Doyle,
who is leaving the PoetrySoup community.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



As you go away, 
Let your heart be light; 
Go beyond this day, 
Live well your new sights.


Purge all sad dismay, 
Let joy fund new flights;
I read your wordplay, 
Glimpsed plain soulful writes.


Follow then your heart:
Listen well and heed;
Each ending now starts
Journey that you need.


Purge all bitter gall
As you now align
Your sure, swift footfalls
With an open mind.


Your true heart must tell
You like your best friend:
This sure guide in-dwells
To show yet fine trends.


Then, from time to time
Visit this our place:
Write then a verse rhyme
If your muse must trace!


God bless your sure trip
From now here to there;
Observe rapture grip
Your new joys somewhere.



Each day we loiter
In quick surge of writes;
Each poet's pen triggers
An impulse that cites...

free cee KISS THAT ABYSS GOODBYE

   KISS THAT ABYSS GOODBYE

Whenever I do things I shouldn’t do
I do a lot of things I shouldn’t do
I play the cards I unfortunately drew
And do things the average person wouldn’t do

My brain knows better but I lose control
And that’s when trouble calls my name
I know it’s wrong in my body and soul
And I also know where to place the blame

My heart knows what I shouldn’t do
But a need ignores the warning
At night I know right from wrong
But once again I’m cursed in the morning

“Take that road,” my mind demands
But I veer off into an abyss alone
“Do what you need,” my soul commands
While unrighteousness owns me body and bone

Winter Goodbye

A soft warm breeze
The birds’ happy song
Playing in the park
Winter was too long

The budding leaves
Flowers in bloom
Seeing and believing
A crescent hung moon

The stars fill the sky
Until clouds roll in
A gentle April shower
New life begins

The sound of the crickets
Singing in the night
Spring time is here
There’s morning light

Another dawn
Crimson sky
A walk in the dew
Winter goodbye
