A Very Unromantic Breakup – Author Lyne Beringer

Stop for just a minute

I can feel the butterflies

I have been waiting for your signature

Before the ink runs dry

I admit that it was never

About the words you’ve said

It was always in the action

Not the visions in my head

I’ve made myself a calendar

So I don’t lose track of days

To be honest, I don’t remember

When we actually parted ways

Forgive me for assaulting you

With words you don’t deserve

I know there was a time and place

I would have never had the nerve

I think I might have growing pains

Sometimes I am amazed

That’s when I tend to take the time

To plan for better days

Oh my gosh, I’m hearing you

The things you used to say

Words encased in action

Yeah…. they sent me on my way

And yet I sit here typing

I’m writing for my life

My emotional well being

A willing victim of the knife

Each and every finger

Punching every key

If only I could command them all

They’d find you face down in the street

The sun is gently setting

Into shadows beyond the hill

I promise to keep myself in check

Of course, I know the drill

Excerpt from the book “Alaskan Vogue”

BeFunkyPhotoAbout the Author

I never thought the word “writer” would be used to describe me and the thoughts that tumble out of my head onto paper. It’s a new me, giving away words all neatly packaged up in rhyme.

 I have lived in the interior of Alaska off and on for nearly twenty years. Alaska gets in your blood. It lures you in then takes your soul hostage, becoming part of who you are, who you become. Every summer, the days are warm, long, and inviting. Tourists descend in droves, racing toward the next adventure, and a rich, colorful history provides plenty of businesses with trinkets to sell the Alaskan nostalgia.  Anything seems possible when you are standing outside at midnight and the stars are nowhere to be found. That is until winter rolls back around.
