Put me on a jet plane
send me speeding through the sky
nothing with me but my carry on packed full of what I couldn’t leave behind.
I spent years stifled in a life forced upon me
and in a few hours I’ll land in a place
where even the thought of you hasn’t graced its space.
I’ll send you knick knacks from the city
And postcards from the beach
just an occasional reminder
of the girl that left your reach.
But when I fly over the ocean,
blue as far as the eye can see
I’ll remember your deep blue eyes
when they would just stare into me.
I’ll never regret loving you
But I’ll never regret leaving
It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done
Painful and unforgiving.
One day it will be worth it though,
That is one thing I can tell
Because you can’t have heaven
Without a little bit of hell.
I am not a poetry writer at all but this actually kind of just happened on accident and I decided to have a little fun with it. Mostly fictional and completely amateur, but hey what the hell, right?
