No Longer

“Dublin Bay” Patrick Naughton

 

 

 

Standing above the world

Splatter of rain beating beneath my feet

The drama that caused these tears will never repeat

For I will no longer weep

No longer welcome in the world you see

I wish I could have said it again

The simplest words that can save

I love you

So keep away

Move on

Because I cannot stay

    Hey! I didn’t know you had made it on to Expats. Welcome 😀

    I feel like there are a few different ways one could interpret this. I think that’s the beauty of poetry- it can be whatever you want it (or need it) to mean.

    Well done!
