Walk Away

walk away

tell the earth that i could not hold you

tell the ocean that i pushed you westward

tell the wind it was
my footsteps, night after night,
that frightened the warmth from our bed

tell the sun it was my salty kiss,
my lips that spoke too loudly,
that made you thirst for something other

fill this universe with the reasons why you must go
flood its shorelines with your well crafted excuses

i have heard enough already
i cannot hear your voice
without trembling again

so go,
riotous man,
find some other woman to hold on to
and leave me to write this poem in peace
