A Poem About a Liberating Breakup: As I Walked Away

Breakups can be both depressing and liberating

As I Walked Away

you turned away,
and I felt the weight
of your judgment
(of your sorrow)
& of your hand:
no longer in mine,
as I walked away.

About As I Walked Away

As I Walked Away is a short poem that captures the essence of a breakup and the liberation of leaving someone who was never there for you. I composed As I Walked Away many years ago and as the content suggests, it’s about someone who drifted away from me toward the end of a relationship. Despite the tension, closure was ultimately found. If you can relate to these sentiments, I hope you’re able to take catharsis in this piece.
