A Life Without You

A Series Of Poems

A Poem By: Martina Garcia

goodbye cubed


when you are sick they say to flush the toxins out of your body

that is what i must do with the people who caused me pain


it is time to delete the pictures

time to stop missing moments

it is time i say goodbye

i no longer give you permission to hurt me


thank you for memories

for the almost friendships

for the growth you have caused


i could name you all personally to make sure you hear my words

but i am no longer that person

and you do not deserve a spot light


my words no longer have to make sense

i no longer want to keep you

my roots have dug so deep that even if you wanted to you could not pick me

i will no longer compare myself to you

you have no power over me


so goodbye

find happiness as i find myself
