Slipping Away

I made a sacrifice today.
I did, and it might have been a big mistake.
But you were too far away.
In my heart, but it feels like you are slipping away.
At first I tried to wait.
I became impatient, so I started to pray.
I became weary, wondering if your love would return this way.
Miles of a difference, so to me you are slipping away.
I never imagined it would be this way.
Im happily in love, but the missing corner of my heart is gray.
If I made you leave, I love you, I also begged you to stay.
I spend my nights waiting by the phone.
No letters, no gifts, and no post-cards.
Slipping away from my grip.
My soul is evaporating, my heart is hanging on a cliff.
You still have my love, while you slowly slip away from it.

Michael Fisher Claim this poet

{Contact Information mfisher20019@gmail.com (202) 903-5527}Im Michael, 26 year old Washington DC native new to the poetry community. Initially i was scared to try the poetry thing for public view....people and decisions that have been made, make it somewhat difficult to step out on a limb and express such talent. Typically my writing come from internal thoughts and feelings towards certain situations. My completed pieces of work are typically finished within minutes of the idea of the piece...I hope everyone can find something enjoyable about my work.. I welcome advise in reference to my work, as this is a new venture for me. Thanks to all my readers more…
