An older one of my poems, written 3 months after a beautiful relationship.


I know it may not be the best of times,

And that perhaps you weren't expecting this,

But listen.

I spent some of the happiest days of my life with you,

I dedicated my heart to you,

Even wrote a couple lyrics in your name,

Im hoping it wasn't in vain,

I'm not trying to win you back but I'd be lying if I said there weren't days I'd think back and reminisce,

We learned so much about each other,

And it frightens me to say it but…,

I'm still in love,

I'm in love with the idea of what we could still…,


See I think you're starting to catch on,

I don't do well at moving on,

A little over attached,

But that's just the way I am,

I like the idea of being just friends but that's just a title,

We were better friends as a couple,

Not sure what came over me to get me writing again,

But damn,

It feels good to let the words flow,

To free the covert thoughts hidden in the brain,

Like how I think about us when it rains,

Or how there's this sharp feeling in my heart,

A certain pain,

I think it's what they call being love sick,

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm afraid to move on,

Perhaps I'm worried I'll never find someone like you,

Perhaps I'm nervous to find someone capable of understanding how I feel,

Perhaps I'm anxious to know in how long I'll heal,


I can't bear to lose you.

I can't believe I've kept my feelings tight for this long after we split,

I'm hoping you don't share my problem,

I'd actually be happy to know if there was someone treating you better,

Someone capable of making time for you,

What am I saying,

You shouldn't have to deal with the stress of school and a relationship,

I guess it was my mistake to rope you into one in the first place,

I'm not sure what the purpose of writing this was,

I guess it was just a way to vent,

To give you a hint of my emotional dismay,

I guess what I'm trying to say is,

……goodbye .

Info- •this is an older one of my poems, Pretty sure I wrote towards the end of junior year, high school • I was going to say it’s just an other broken hearted poem, but I can’t help it… I’m attached to this poem • it’s been 3 years already and I’m just publishing it • I still get that tight feeling when I think about this one
