Magpie Mondays {Chairs and White Dresses}


Chairs and White Dresses

I'm finally walking away,
I finally mustered up all the courage to be alone.

With my made-up dream with you all broken,
like empty chairs scattered on the green fields.

But, I'll never be afraid to look back.
Never, if it means abandoning the man that I've always loved

And will always love.
It'll still be you and me, only different.

I like it. It's a real love, even if it's one-sided.

Lots of good connections to the picture, but a good write all on its own. And real enough to me that I hope it all worked out. My Magpie this week is Goldilocks
