Strength


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,

yes,

yes,

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.
