The Goodbye-But-I'm-Not-Over-You Poem

I am heart-cold, I am a monster


I am too old, for things to ever get better


The history unfolds, as we reach the closure


Not too small kind of a hole, it is just way bigger.


 


I tried my way, a shot for amend


Well as you say, it doesn’t reciprocate on your end


Should I stay, or should I have went


Together we may, but reality won’t bend.


 


I hate time, I hate constancy


I hate subways, they hurt my eye to see


I hate you, but you keep coming back to be


I hate possibility, because I want you to be real to me.


 


A seed it started, a tree it ends


How sadly we departed, how crazy it could have been


You saw me in scarlet, well that was the plan


Something we wanted, yet nothing was ever meant.


 


Let’s be quiet, let’s be clear


I am so hurt, you are so dear


There is no word, feelings can’t conquer


It may seem absurd, but there’s nothing to fear.


 


You lead your dream, I lead mine


You won’t hear my scream, and I don’t mind


I smile I beam, still there’s nothing to bind


The light fades in dim, the foreseeable go blind.


 


I love fireworks, though I can't see


I know you do too, just don't want to admit it to me


Well well my love, as long as you don't see


I'll always be here, at this bench, under the same tree.
