A Fork In The Road

I will not cry anymore
I have become numb
I cannot continue to hope for change
I know will never come
I must move on and save myself
from the sorrow which surrounds me
I tell myself I am not selfish
I have suffered long enough
in a relationship of emptiness
Always sacrificing the things I need
the things I enjoy and for what
for the greater good, for him
and his egoism
His words say one thing
his actions another
they do not coincide
I'm always uncovering lies
We are nothing more
than two people walking
down the same road
which leads to nowhere
That road has now
reached a fork
As destiny will have it
he will go left
and I will go right
Two separate roads
out of the darkness
and into the light

A Native New Yorker, I've been writing poetry for as long as I can remember. It is my hope that someone may find solace in my words.
