Word Play Wednesday: A Woman Who Walks Alone by Biyai Garricks

Welcome to Word Play Wednesday!
Word Play Wednesday is a weekly feature of written and spoken word poetry. I will be sharing my written and spoken word poems in addition to poems by other like wonderful Poets both past and present. If you are interested in sharing some of your poetry, feel free to buzz me and we can work something out.

I hope that you enjoy reading and listening to our thoughts, feelings and rants and in many ways relate to some of them.

This week I will be sharing one of my poems.

A Woman Who Walks Alone

All these years,

I’ve drowned in my tears,

longing for a glance,

a chance, or a hint,

of attention,

or affection,

that you still care,

that you will be there when I need you.


how I miss,

that light in your eyes when I walk into a room,

like I am the only thing you see,

that bright light has deemed,

Into a shadow that seems to have no form.

And I believed,

that if I fought hard enough,

If I cried,

If I begged,

If only I did something right,

Then everything would be alright.

But after all said and done,

nothing really changes.


You seem to try,

to be the boy I once knew,

but you can’t give what you don’t have,

Cos love as they say, don’t live here anymore.

You say you want to work things out,

You say you still love me,

and I wish I wasn’t so tired of those lines,

I wish you were honest from the start,

I wish you were honest to yourself.

Then maybe we would have had a chance,

Maybe we would have started another dance,

but life and it’s ways

will happen no matter what prices paid,

and I accept who we are now,

and I accept who we can never be,

and I accept who I have become,

A woman,

Who walks alone.
