Pookey's Poems

Better off


I’ve been doing some thinking
About this new life path I’ll be taking
It’ll be really scary not to have you by my side
When I’ve counted on you for so many things

I’m strong in spirit and will not give up and quit
I believe in my heart, that is just what you did you quit
I grew up in a house of love and hope
You grew up with common sense and dope

I am the dreamer, my eyes wide shut
You’re the controller, eyes on the buck
Our love was more than a whim
Yet we threw caution to the wind

We found the fantasy mirage
And thought we could beat the odds
Oh how we struggled just to be together
I guess you were tired of trying to love another

I never gave up on love, but I gave on you
I guess that why I did, what I did to you
You’ve done me a favor
My future I’ll savor

Because “Better off” I’ll be
To finally live my life
For “I” and not “We”
