Alone

To stand alone again in morning light,
after another argument of wasted words,
yes, you know to hit them where it hurts
but you don’t realise you do so at the time.

One day you’ll know what they expect from you
and more so, what is better left unsaid
but for the moment, alone again you stand, and tread
into the morning light that is too eager pleasing.

  4. Yes, arguments are ‘wasted words’ – how very true, sadly so. Perhaps there is no way to pick them wisely. XO ♥

    • 🙂 If you are not really a pleaser, arguments come with life perhaps, but they are very unsettling! ♥ xx

  5. A bar of chocolate, a cup of Earl Grey, and this poem. Morning in Scotland.
