You wrote me sonnets smeared with fear and questions in every corner
I though it was poetic, my heart even fluttered through every layer
We glided around, went back and forth between trepidations and valor
It was fun until the weary waves finally disgruntled the young sailor

I laughed and danced along as we went through an emotional spin
But your uncertainties have become callous thorns against my skin
Your voice flaunted the hesitation in your every word
Enshrining your tongue like a protective sword

But you cannot forever keep me in this murky box of confusion
I have ripped enough veins trying to guess your intentions
I will unclench my fist and let you come home to your thoughts

Untie the old rose ribbon and sing me one last song
With gratitude and pain, I will take my final place
Anywhere is better than a bar filled with smoky haze

"Untie the old rose ribbon and sing me one last song"

I imagined you felt the heaviest on this line.

Takes strength and courage to say you are willing to let go.

Nice piece :)

I'm scratching my head after reading this poem. I always thought she's mostly about humor especially when in the chatroom and then this reaction O_O after reading this. It never fails to surprise when there's a great poem coming from the unexpected. It's that same feeling that a single read is not enough but a couple more to satisfy.

If its only possible for the users to have a vote an such a poem, then once enough votes are collected it gets moved to its own section of this website. :) Because these are the types that are for keeps and would still be a great read for years to come.

Mahirap pakawalan ang bagay na naging mahalang psrte ng buhay mo. Pero mas mahirap magkaroon ng kalakas ng loob na balikan ito.
Nicely done.
Mahirap makipagsabayan sa daluyong kung hindi pareho ang tinatahak niyong landas.
