Leaving

The hardest part I recall
In leaving you
Was those final stairs
Up and away
From the beach where we met
And wandered so long
Hand in hand

Now distant
My hands are free
To find another love and another time
But those stairs will haunt me
With the loss of promise
And the realisation
Of regret

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
