Stuart A. Staples - Goodbye to Old Friends

OLD PA'S WEDNESDAY CLUB

THE PRISON
A SINGLE TEAR

 
STUART A. STAPLES -  Goodbye to Old Friends (2006)

THE PRISON

She held my arm tightly
with both her hands
her face was pale
with a hint of pink on her cheeks
a single tear trickled down
she was usually so strong
always in control
i gently pulled away
she released her grip
i turned around
there was no pleasure
in my control
no pleasure at all
i did not look behind

i kept on walking 
there was no magnetic pull
dragging me back
nothing
i was free

free from the prison
 that was her

Blimey, so many questions! Very emotive and with Stuarts voice, suitably painful!
