Goodbye. By C A Middleton © 2017

If I’m not worthy of your time,
Your smiles or even
Your changing styles;
A three second call 
As you leave your hall;
The five minute brew
With nothing new 
To say but
Then I won’t cry.
I’ll just chalk you up 
With the past,
Drop you to a supporting cast,
Accept what was first
Is now the last.
What’s been has now 
Up and walked.
A long cold silence where
Once we talked
And giggled like 
Half-baked loons.
Yet, I at least I can say
I tried.
So, remember when 
You want my words, or
Just muffins filled with
Lemon curd, or
Even silly bordered 
With complete absurd and
There’s no other voice
Who is first choice,
Just me and mine 
At the end of the line,
Then you can go…
On remembering 
I’m soft of heart and 
Probably wouldn’t 
Turn away a fart
Even if it stunk up my room to
Kingdom come and 
Summer’s doom.
I wouldn’t blank you 
In the street,
If we should once
Have chance to meet.
But there is a difference 
In being caring 
To the heart 
I was used to sharing.
You smash the flower and
It won’t grow.
A fact my dear 
You should take note to know.
So, goodbye, adieu,
A fond farewell!
I hope your lives 
Have tales to tell.
Though what a shame 
The years speed fast and
Words will whisper 
When death’s die’s cast.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
