Poems What's New

Goodbye-Drew Owen

Whether by accident or on purpose did I leave,

Not by fear or loss

But by my endless reprieve.


I wished to be with for until I’m gone,

But it’s you I’ve most done wrong

Leaving you bleeding on that sidewalk lawn.


The shots rang out

Forever in my mind like a broken record,

And it makes me sick.


Not because you’re dead,

But because I couldn’t help you sooner.

It took your death to realize my endless power coming so quick.


So I hold my breath for you now,

Hoping you’ll come back.

But I know better Green Eyes,

We’re too far apart on the track.
