Chase That Away

Poetry By: Tangible Word

A completely fictional story, melded into a poem

Brown hair, deep blue eyes, she walks with a purpose

Mouth set in a frown, fists clenched, she thinks it's worth it

A no to the beggar

A yes to the pleasure

I wonder why I acted like you were hidden treasure

Sweat beaded brow, hate in your talk, she lives for the last word

Tight jeans, the most expensive of blouse, just to hide the hurt

Cries herself to sleep

To be thin she doesn't eat

I used to live for a glimpse of you, now can only stare at your feet

Alone in heaven, quite crowded in hell, she puts on her mask

Drives the best, dates for money, goes through life like it's a task

No one to turn to

You only care for you

I guess that's what you get for rejecting my love for you

Wind whips her hair, traffic shouts below, one foot off the edge

Resolve made up, depression won, now she's jumping off the ledge

You're not going to be missed

By everyone you tricked

I forgive you though, even though my life you dissed

Mouth twisted, eyes brimming with tears, while I hold you dear

Off the ledge, standing on the balcony, I chase away your fear

My love was never fake

Even if it's much to take

I love you dearly, despite your coldness, my heart I gave

And not life, your coldness or hate

Can chase that away.
