Just One More

Posted by Brodie Kirkpatrick on

This poem is by Patrick Rifino

It’s been a year 

Since you’ve seen me here


But I told you just one more


Another trip, another goal


And maybe then I will feel whole.


The ebbs and flows


The places I go.


You ask me to stay


But yet I go away and tell you just one more.


I give you ring and it makes you smile 


Till I tell you it’s going to be a while.


So I tell you just one more.


We buy a house, I go to school 


But we both know I feel like a fool.

 

This isn’t me, I’m trying though


So I can show you I’m ready to grow.


But in the end I’m failing


I packed my bags, looked at her and smiled.


“Just one more” she said knowing it would be a while.


Before I wrote, before I called, before I did anything at all.


I said “of course” and went away


Nothing as simple as love could force me to stay.
