A Ride To Forget

by Alena Harris

You were the one person I felt real with.
You were the one thing in my life
that I could count on being true. 
And so I relaxed. 
And I let out a breath of relief. 
And I decided to sit back and enjoy the ride. 
A ride which at first was fun and exciting
but by the end of the ride I was mad and crying. 
I looked to you for comfort
but how do I get comfort
from the one thing that is causing me pain? 
I didn't know that when I bought my ticket
that this ride would have so many peaks and valleys. 
And end with a 100ft drop into nothing. 
This is one ride I can't take one more time. 
Even though I have said that before
and when I did I was left once again just feeling sick. 
I won't ride anymore. 
I can't ride anymore. 
I can't look at you the same. 
And we will never be the same.
