The Days of Stray.

The days of stray...

The days when i'd play...

Hurting the one who means the most to me

by staying away.

Causing pain

again and again.

And then i'd return

to where she waits for me sleeping,

and try to tell myself that i don't care.

Yet, i creep up the stairs

and i try not to disturb her,

and i lay awake at night pondering until the morning peers in

and sheds some light upon the fact that i'm living in this skin.

Then, and when i'm living in sin,

i can hate myself,

and try to lie to myself,

and think of giving in.

These are the days of stray,

and the memories won't fade away...

And though i've known pain,

i can't complain

because if given the chance

i'd do it again...

I'd do it all again.

Wow...this poem is great. I can completely understand both sides feelings, the man and the woman. Been there, done that. Wonderfully written.
