I want to be Just Like You

Poetry By: Angie Blake

Seeing a loved one after so many years and the whirlwind of emotions that come with it.

I couldn't help it
I saw you today and my heart filled with anger
I'm angry at you for changing so much I don't even know you anymore
and I'm angry at me for trying to change you back.

We grew apart that's all that happened.
There were so many challenges to face
and so many obstacles to over come that it just put a huge wedge between us
that wouldn't let go.

I pity you
for acting like none of this ever hurt you
You act like knowing me didn't change anything about you or have anything to do
with your changing.
I pity me
for not being able to move on and let go like you.

I couldn't help it
When I saw you today my heart jumped a little.
My mind went into this crazy whirlwind of a tornado of memories and thoughts
that I couldn't stop.
I secretly wanted to come up and tell you that I still love you and miss you every day.
But I couldn't
because I wanted to let you know that I've moved on and let go, just like you.
