Watching her taillights

-~~- He stood on the corner as she drove on by Watching her taillights, a tear in his eye Feeling the sadness that grew in his heart But knew it was best that they now were apart For she never loved him, it all was pretend Just needed to know she could be loved again He turns now to watch as she fades from this place Watching her taillights, a smile on his face

Hi Chris, This poem is well written and sad. Sometimes parting ways is for the best. I didn't expect the smile at end. It symbolized that he would be ok. As always, great job my friend. Have a great day:-) Alexis

A win-win poem, my friend. Unusual, too, in that 'normally,' the driver's need to be loved again, once satiated, would have destroyed the innocent victim. But he got it. Good for him. A mature write. Poetry blessings, Gershon
