Hello Or Goodbye? ? - Poem by Angel of Darkness

If I told you I was leaving
never to return
would you cry and say you love me?
would your heart forever burn?
or would you simply shrug
and look me in the eyes
never flinch or shed a tear
and easily say goodbye?
because I feel I'm already gone
no effect left on my life
just like being cut
but no wound left from the knife
at night sometimes I yearn for you
but seldom give you a call
cause when I do it seems as if
you don't miss me at all
I often lay awake and cry
over the songs that we once shared
the times you held me close to you
and told me that you cared
they seem so far away now
even the memories linger less
we seem to have forgotten
all our smiles and happiness
do friends not matter in the world?
Have i no meaning to you
does it matter how much I loved you
or how much that we've been through
well I thought about you this holiday
and decided to write it down
even though these words to you
upon your ears may sound profound
Youll always have that place
deep inside my soul
and though you set me free
Ill never let you go
I don't want you as a lover
I want you as a friend
so today I want to know
Is this the beginning or the end?
