Best Thing Ever - Poem by joses tirtabudi

You walked into an unscarred heart.

Built it up then tore it apart.

Left me floundering in the dark.


Like a ship without a crew in the sea -

Like a glider in a sky with no breeze -

When you left, didn't think I could breathe.


Nosedive into a dark cold place.

Everywhere I went, I saw your face.

Lost my sight, smell, and taste.


The darkest of all nights, descended long,

but the night tis darkest before dawn

And a dazzling light shone at the break of morn.


You and your lies became a dream of the past,

The sunshine chased away the spell you cast

And now I'm back alive at long last!


In the morning light came a new dawn.

The hell of yesterday, long gone,

And suddenly I realised, not all that glitters is gold.


I saw who you were, nothing but a scarecrow -

So I leapt off the edge and into the big blue below.

Bye bye. To think I almost had the chance to never know.


Without you here, I've finally found real beauty

Walked through hell and lived - despite what you did.

You use to be the best, but now I'm loving after it.


I believed in never say never.

But the day you left forever -

It was the best day ever.
