Print Save Become a Fan
It's been so long since you walked out
Down that long, winding track to the past,
Taking my heart and leaving me broken
Wondering how long this torment would last.
It's lasted so much longer than I thought
The months are flying by and I still care,
You're still on my mind twenty-four-seven
And I can't believe that you're not there.
I still reminisce over memories shared
Of the way dimples used to light up your cheek,
Of the way your eyes used to gleam
And my knes still go so weak.
I still reminisce over eye contact
And conversations that we once had,
When you left I knew I'd hang on
But I didn't think I'd be this bad.
I spend my time daydreaming about you
Wishing you never had to leave,
Hoping one day you'll walk back into my life
Because you are all that I need.
When I lay down and close my eyes
I can still see your perfect face smiling at me,
No matter how hard I try to forget you
You just can't let me be.
I should be over you by now I know
Since it's been such a really long time,
But the feelings are still plaguing me
And I can't believe you weren't mine.
Next time, I won't be so foolish
I won't live in a dream instead of reality,
I won't hide how I feel deep inside
I'll let my true feelings fly so free.
I'll avoid all this trauma I'm suffering
I'll stop myself from being battered and bruised,
I'll avoid being weighed down with tears
I'll stop myself from feeling so abused.
Why did I let my fear stop me from speaking out?
Why did I let you walk out of my life like I didn't care?
Knowing that all I ever wanted was you
And I'd miss you if you were never there.

|This is very well expressed.
Each relationship gives you a tiny peek of the souls mirror...the one you are really looking for. We get so bogged down in the wrong relationships, we don't see all the things that are really wrong with.
This is an insightful poem. Glad I stopped by.
