Poem - Out! Out! Out I Say


Back


Out! Out! Out I Say - Poem
Out! Out! Out I Say - Poem
Peering through the layers of fog,
Into the mirror of my mind
The little storm has become a raging tempest.
Violent, destructive, and quite unkind!
Emotions stirred and tossed and turned.
Unseen tears....angry, turbulent rivers!
Outward peace and calmness only betrayed
By shaky voice from lips that quivered.

But............!

I shall not be the helpless driftwood
At the mercy of every passing ripple
I shall not be the cotton-ball cloud
At the whim of ever-changing winds
I shall not be the broken-hearted lover.
Loving genuine love....but still unloved.
And I shall not be the dancing puppet
At the end of a set of moving strings
……………………..

No! It shall not be!
So now, you hear this!


Out! Out! Out I say!
You are not welcomed in my mind today.
I cannot entertain you, so get out of my mind.
You are no good for me....and not too kind.

You are just an addiction to which I was bound.
Now I resist, but still see your shadows all around.
Please take all my thoughts of you when you go,
And make it a bit easier for me to say no.

With all my time I shall do better things,
And not suffer the pains your presence brings.
No longer shall I shed tears for your sake.
This mistake again and again, I shall not make.

Step through my mind's door and I shall push you out.
You and all your troubles, I can do without.
I shall close my door and not open at your knock.
To you, my heart and will....Shall be a rock.

So, you keep your damned bottle and your pill.
As of today, me, you shall not kill.
So! Out! Out! Out I say!
You are not welcomed in my mind today.
