You walked away as I stood by the window,
we had been talking as she walked by,
the beautiful one
bouncing long curly hair,
her perfect body
her perfect smile
and I watched you
as you watched her
and the look in your eyes spoke volumes
that did not need to be uttered,
it was enough.
you walked away to catch up to her
leaving me looking in the mirror
at the reflection,
no beautiful hair
no supermodel body
but in the mind
the truth was there,
I too could walk away now and not look back
as life wasn’t about you anymore
or what I thought was love,
life was about being good enough for me
for being strong enough to let you go
to know I was worth more
than you would ever know.
I looked out the window with a slight smile,
I am not her
I am me
and that is all that matters.
goodbye I whispered to the empty room,
closing the door
I walked away head held high.
