There’s tension in the room,



A feeling of despair,



I feel so very guilty,



Yet I need to face her.



Like a small urchin waif



She stands there crying



I feel my heart is breaking



But I have to end the lying.



 



She deserves so much better 



Than I am able to give



She needs the chance



To start once more to live.



She needs a lover



I only need a friend 



So very sadly 



This relationship must end.



 



I hand her the key



To her apartment door



Which her lifeless fingers



Let drop to the floor.



If i stay any longer 



My resolve will break;



This decision was 



So very hard to make.



 



There had to come a time



When I had to move on; 



I close the door behind me, 



And with regret have gone.



Her sobs follow me



Down the stairs onto the street



The outer door slams closed and



Another chapter of my life is complete
