…set my sails for a life apart.

What she doesn’t seem to know
Is that I broke it off with you two weeks ago

A letter that begins with “Dear John”
Restating my intention to take action

Letting go of the deep soul place I held sacred
No one to blame, the commitment faded

The stars were not aligned for us to last
Too much garbage not thrown out with the past

What is with the drama and games?
Only a tormented one seeks to defame

I don’t understand the trauma and jealousy
My spirit seeks a higher energy

I had charted my full life long before your arrival
My life is blessed far beyond simple survival

I am a woman of morals and high worth
With my feet planted firmly on the earth

I want a love willing to sign up for adventure
Not one who believes their life is indentured

What we had is not enough to sustain
When you resolutely live in your pain

Your sweet words of promise sound nice
Yet, I am unwilling to discount my price

I light up the whole world with grace and affection
Keep looking behind you, I’m not going that direction

So I’ve decided to set my sails for a life apart
As I’m quite happy being a single serving ala carte!
