Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


04 April 2014



I’ve tried to hold on, while learning to let go,

to remember while trying to forget.

I’ve tried to heal holding on to the pain,

I’ve tried to forgive, still trying to blame,

to see no one’s right, admitting no wrong,

unwilling to choose, choosing all along.

I’ve analyzed and I’ve tried to explain,

I understand, but still questions remain.

I’ve grieved and bargained and all of the rest,

believing it was really for the best.

There isn’t closure, at least not for me,

there will always be this dichotomy.
