RealTalk Poetry • A Life Beyond Sad


They say my smile’s bigger
since you last made me frown.

They say I sound better
since you last let me down.

I gave you my all,
from my mind to my heart.

I gave you it all,
and you tore it apart.

For the years that I wasted,
I won’t waste a day more.

And my tears,
– they will freeze –
on your cold hardwood floor.

There are no words to be said,
or goodbye’s to be had.

I have to believe there’s a life beyond sad.
