How Can I Move?

How can I move

How can I breathe

When he takes my heart with him

Every time he leaves?


I feel it in my lungs,

My mind turns to mush,

The feeling of dejection comes at me,

In a very big rush.


I will endure,

So that when he returns,

I will take my heart from him,

Step out of the door and run.


He will try to give chase

Waving empty promises,

But I will find love elsewhere,

I will be someone else’s Mrs.

P.S. I sent the first verse of this poem to as an entry for last year’s #postapoem week and they were kind enough to feature it as one of their entries! You can view it here.
