Tonight I am getting over you

Tonight I am getting over you

I will step into the shower and wash you out of my hair

But this time I will be thorough, I will clean behind the ears where our conversations still linger

Undelivered promises, wishful thinking at its best

By the sink I shall rinse the mouth that I wanted you to share, gargle and spit out the words that  have only been heard by you

This time when I dress it will be for me,

I will no longer dress with your attention in mind

For no combination of garments ever made you see me

The mascara I put on will be for me,

And the blemishes that I paint over will be for me

For no amount of makeup ever convinced you that I was beautiful

Finally when I am done, I will inspect myself in the mirror as always

The outfit chosen for me now I have accepted that you are not for me

  1. Wow! You write very well. I’ve been reading your posts and I gotta say, You are amazing, I’m new to all these stuff, I just started my Blog yesterday and I am trying to interact with different writers out there, and I hope that it’s okay if I follow your Blog Page, and then you can follow my Page as well, so that we can learn from each other, have deep conversation and talk about Writing and the likes. Thank you!

      1. Thank you. But it seems like you deleted your Blog Page, I can’t see the posts. I know, it’s great to know that there is this kind of group or community of people who loves Writing.
