(Poetry) Happy Ever After

HAPPY EVER AFTER

How can you reason
With betraying yourself,
How can you justify
The dangers you let yourself take.
I know it’s not easy
But sometimes you have to put things behind you,
I know it’s not easy
But you have to do what your brain tells you is right.
I’m sorry to have to let you know,
And I’m sorry that you’ve let me go,
But you’ve got to start looking after yourself
For the sake of the “ever after”.
You’ve got to choose a path
One which will give you the least pain.
I know it’s hard to walk away
But sometimes that’s the right path to take.
I really didn’t want to let you know
But I really didn’t want to see you hurt,
I can’t bear to see pain in your eyes
But I can remember how you felt before.
I can’t believe you’re letting yourself be treated like this,
I can’t get over you can’t see through the words he whispers.
How can you let this happen
When you’ve already been warned ?
You know what’s happening
And where you stand in his game
And you seem so pleased to play,
And I just can’t believe you’re happy that way,
But the risks you take are your own
And I guess I’ll only hear how you are
Through the mouths of others
Because I can’t bear to stay around
And see you put yourself through it all again.
And I’m sorry that you’ve let me go
But you’ve got to start looking after yourself
For the sake of the “ever after”.
You’ve got to choose a path,
One which will give you the least pain,
I know it’s hard to walk away
But sometimes that’s the right path to take.

(This poem was originally written for a very close friend of mine. It never appeared in any of my compilations and to be honest I'd actually forgotten about it until a few minutes ago when I uncovered it whilst looking for a poem to post. I'm hoping to get back to posting up a poem each week again as I do realise I've been very lax with this the last few weeks. - Angus)
