over you


just when i thought i was over you,

I saw a picture of you with a girl I don't know
I wanted to shout but then, I will not stoop that low
It's really hard when you're only learning to let go
Because looking back will always be a big NO-NO

What's the big deal? You and I were never together
So why am I hoping to be with you forever?
I guess the two of us were never meant for each other
Nothing really started so nothing will be over

I used to say I wanted our friendship to remain
But after all you've done, all I feel is pure disdain
You think I'm so ordinary, just like that- so plain
You didn't notice that I'm more like a porcelain

There's really no sense trying to make everything right
Well, In the first place, we never had a proper plight
We never had an argument that led to a fight
Just a love connection that ended one April night

Here's the truth, a confession I've been wanting to tell
I'm really trying to move on, so I can be well
But in my mind, there you seem to comfortably dwell
And so you are making my whole world a living hell.

Please cooperate, please be nice, please be man enough!
When you said you love me, I thought it was not a bluff!
So take responsibility and don't you dare laugh!
Sooner or later I'll find the courage to be tough!

As for now, bear with me and pretend nothing happened.
I still can't accept that our friendship came to an end
I used to reach out and you'll be there to grab my hand
Now you're just somebody that used to be my best friend.

Poem of the Day

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
