I HAVE TO GO (standard:poetry, 182 words)
Author: rtpoetAdded: Sep 27 2000Views/Reads: 2455/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
One man's only form of relief from the pain of his wife's extra marital affair
 



I HAVE TO GO 


WHEN I CALLED YOU ON THE PHONE
I KNEW YOU WERE NOT ALONE
THE INFLECTION IN YOUR VOICE
GAVE YOU AWAY.


ALL THE THINGS I HAD TO SAY
SUDDENLY WENT AWAY
AS MY HEART FLOODED WITH GRIEF.


FOR A MOMENT I WAS SURE
I COULDN'T, WOULDN'T ENDURE
BUT I COMPOSED MYSELF
LONG ENOUGH TO SAY,.


I'LL BE HOME FROM MY TRIP TOMORROW
DO NOT SHOW REMORSE OR SORROW
MY LOVE IS LIKE A FIREPLACE COAL
ONCE BURNED, FROM ASHES WILL NOT RETURN.


I KNOW NOT THE CAUSE, ONLY THE EFFECT
AND I CERTAINLY DIDN'T DETECT
WHAT WOULD PROMPT YOU TO THIS
INDESCRETION .


I'M SORRY ABOUT MY INFLEXIBLE STATE
HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SPITE OR HATE
I JUST CAN'T LIVE WITH THIS PAIN 
YOU HAVE IMPOSED.


SO GOODBY AND I WISH YOU WELL
THANK YOU FOR THE HAPPINESS I'VE FELT
AND FOR LETTING ME LOVE YOU ALL THESE YEARS.


I HAVE TO GO BEFORE THE PAIN
BECOMES TOO MUCH TO BEAR 
I DON'T THINK I COULD HANDLE IT
IF I THOUGHT YOU DIDN'T CARE.
