Poetry: Time to Move On

Out of the Sandbox

By Diana L. Perez

“Time to Move on”

Feelings that I feel

Are deep down inside

Even when I don’t see you

They are in there, I can’t deny


I know they’re probably one sided

Perhaps you don’t feel the same way

But it don’t matter

What more is there to say?


It was great while it lasted

The memories are bitter sweet

I cried for months, it hurt

I admitted complete defeat


You’re with another woman

I knew it all along

I could see it in your face

It’s the same old sorry song


The feelings I still feel

Remind me of the pain

It serves as a rude awakening

Like the bright sun right after the rain.


You’re gone now, it’s over

We both need to carry on

I gave God the broken pieces of my heart

It’s him now who I count upon.
