Closed Chapter - Poem by Elizabeth Gaytan

So it is called for me to accept
that we are know just friends.
And when saluting you,
I can only shake your hand or
conform myself with a kiss on your cheek.

To account that in your life I am nothing,
though in mine you are it's world.
You are the light that illuminated my way.
You are my wine, my bread
perhaps I sound prohibited.

How to tare you out of my life,
if there are no forces.
How to erase the embedded tattos of your lips.
How to learn to let you go,
when once I held you in my hands.
How to close this chapter of my life.
How do I end the story of your life.
How to forget, if which each step I take,
I bless and curse your name.

Losing myself in an abbyss
of loneliness and broken dreams.
Wishing that you never forget my name,
while I try to forget the way your body felt.
Perhaps I sound egoistic to say
I love you with all my heart,
eventhough you have moved on.

But I have to close this chapter
and end the story of your life.
Chapter 2 of my life can begin now.......
