“No—I Will Not …”

If I could but turn back the hands of time

reminisce over our melancholy used to be

cogitate love’s demise under our old tree

l would confess with vast ease on a dime

Even though you

want me back…

No—I will not

While your hands flew over the piano keys

with perfect harmony as I sipped fine wine

I remained content to watch your star shine

as for me—the limelight, I elected not to seize

 Even though you

want me back…

No—I will not

I remember the days of living in a fishbowl

as reality will not relinquish its weary hold

time took its toll on my heart, it turned cold

sometimes I ponder if I will again be whole

Even though you

want me back…

No—I will not

I no longer yearn for your touch as back then

since you sought to shatter our beloved vows

as I had no desire to seek you out and arouse

chose to leave my heartbreak behind—amen

Even though you

want me back…

No—I will not

If I could but turn back the hands of time

reminisce over our melancholy used to be

cogitate love’s demise under our old tree

I would confess with vast ease on a dime

Even though you

want me back…

No—I will not

I am an Indie author who loves to tell a story. I've published many books on Amazon from poetry to contemporary. However, the old west if my favorite genre.

Last year I collaborated on a poetry book with seven other authors from around the world--"Our United Voices"--also available via my Amazon website. However, we are now working on a second poetry book due out later this year.

If my writing makes you laugh, cry, or touch your emotions in some way throughout your journey, then I have achieved my goal. And, perhaps along the way I have proven where there is love—anything is possible. If you read my work, I'd love to hear from you: http://jacksy.allauthor.com/
