Excerpt From my book, “Heart Paths”

This poem that I am going to share is about the times when perhaps you cross another’s mind. It basically is saying that if you don’t care, don’t think about me.

I was shunned by my own family, after many years of conflict, many years of them looking the other way, yet finding ways to make my home life miserable.

I love this “matter of fact” poem. It is one of my own favorites.

Hope you enjoy!

Don’t Think About Me

Each time when I happen to cross your mind

Think of just what you’ve left behind

Think of all the day that’s gone

And how much time I’ve been alone

Each picture that was once so proudly displayed

Now are hidden and tucked away

There is not a memory around now of me

Just the thoughts in your mind that simply just go round

Each word or mention of me in passing

“Ducking” from all the questioning

What to say about decisions made

Because in your heart so heavily they’ve laid

Each tear that was shed was it from regret?

Or was it self-pity that you wanted to get?

Shame, how time changes some men

Kind of scary to think you’ve forgotten about the sin

Each family event that you have planned

One less family member to get the upper hand

Time has a way of showing whose true

Again I’m sorry that it couldn’t be you

So each time I am in your head

Remember it was away from you I was led

Don’t think about me

If only actions was all it would have taken

For me not to has felt forsaken

Don’t, just don’t, think about me

I’m in charge of my life can’t you see?

Each thing I’ve not forgotten

Each word I have memorized

Each step from you and you’re still surprised!

Don’t think about me.

  1. This eerily reminiscent of a family situation I’m very familiar with. Very raw and strong stuff here
