Leave the Past Where It Belongs

Poetry By: Coralie

This is dedicated to Ashlynn, who had once been my best friend. We were like sisters for about five years.... and then she found a boyfriend and became friends with the other person whom had been my best friend too... It's still difficult to put this into words. I'm sorry if this sucks.

It's impossible to forget
All that we have done, all that we shared
A friendship like that cannot be compared,
And an ending like that is something that
Above all else, will never be repaired.
I refuse to regret.

If I look into the past,
I see all of those happy times,
But as far as you would know,
You'd never let your true opinions and feelings show.
What kind of person would I make
If I let you steal my heart
And cause irreversible breaks?

You've done all that and more
Another point for you to add
To your score
I hope that someday you will understand
That I'm not going to wait around
You've left me for someone else
With less of a history
Now I have to pick myself up off the ground.

Broken heart and broken mind
Out of the two of us,
Who was truly blind?
You took too many pieces
That I cannot reclaim
But without you in my life,
I will never be the same.

When he breaks up with you,
And when she leaves you too,
I'm not going to be here.
You had your chance to redeem yourself
Instead you placed me on the shelf
Going to them instead,
Leaving me grasping for the truth
And seeing red.
If you must know,
I really do miss you
Or, the old you.
How much you've changed,
The priorities to you so fucked up,
So rearranged.
You've truly become
The epitome of what you used to hate
You seem content to some,
But I'm ready for a clean slate.

I'm trying hard to leave
The past there where it belongs
And move on with my life,
What I haven't been doing for so long.
Now it's time to take your picture off my wall
And stop trying to call.
You made your decisions on who you prefer
I'm over you being here
Only for fair weather.
