I watched, poems by Liliane Brusa

I watched you as you walked away.
I watched you walk until I couldn’t see you anymore.
I watched as I put my hands over my mouth to stop from crying out.
I watched you walk right out of my life after I stayed while you tore me apart.
I watched until I couldn’t anymore and walked away like you did to me.
But this time it wasn’t my choice.
Sometimes in life
Sometimes in life you don’t get what you want so you find something better.
Sometimes in life things don’t end up the way you want them to,
so you pretend they didn’t happen.
Sometimes in life you can lose people so you pretend you never knew them.
Sometimes in life you can give someone your whole heart and they throw it away
so you have to learn to love yourself and hope that’s enough.
