Again - Poem by Lindsay King

i've said all the things i never wanted to say
and looking you in the eyes could be the worst thing for me
with what i know now i can finally think in peace
i can finally begin the cycle all over again
to walk down the same street,
wondering when it will all fall together-
for an apathetic man,
you sure as hell did a painful number on me
you left me to die in numerous ways
that i haven't even begun to describe
so we've reached the point
of not talking, of letting go
i don't know if i'll ever see you again
don't you ever wonder who will be the first to open their mouth?
and if it won't be me, will it be you?
can you pull your head out of your ass
just long enough to see what you've done?
all my friends say you're too self absorbed
to ever admit any faults
short of what makes you look better
i think i finally have to agree with that idea
i've seen what you've done,
and i've seen the real you
a boy who's yet to find himself
so i have to completely let you go
three weeks without talking
is it the best for both of us?
i think i've begun to let you go
and the details of your face slowly begin to fade
did you have crystal blue or grayish blue eyes?
i can't remember for the love of me
the curve of your nose lost in-between images of other lost ones
i've lost you in the way that you lost yourself

    I really like that one Lindsay its great i thinki in so many perspectives, especially the ending. When in a relationship and it doesn't really work then more then likely somone didint know themself befre entering in the relationship, it just falls apart after that first kiss (Report) Reply
