8 Years,8 Years And Counting - Poem by Diego Adrian Manriquez

I'm fading away from you with each passing day,
Told me that I was everything to you and still somehow we went our seperate ways,
At first we refused to believe,
You're a great liar and I soon fooled me,
Now opened up I have this feeling of needing you,
(And you're needing me)
You're a liar and fake,
Using these to explain you isn't good enough and it's cliche,
I can't even summon the courage on how to describe what you are,
Instead I'll run,
Instead I'll slip away,
Crawl to all the memories we've made up into the back of my head,
Without trying to be overdramatic it seemed as if nothing was what it was supposed to be,
Alone and confused in a place where I have no one to talk to,
Or its what I made myself believe?
I like this pain of being heartbroken,
It seemed to me that this was what it took to make me feel alive,
They ask me all the time 'Did it hurt? '
And I always reply 'Not only emotionally but physically as well'
'Do I regret it? '
'No, no, no.... not a single thing! '
I'm not going to close myself up,
I'm not going to make it worse,
It is what it is,
The worst has already come,
I can only look ahead and hope for a better day,
Then she asked me 'Do you still love her? '
I will force a smile and hold back the tears and reply 'Yes.'
