A short poem about knowing someone isn't 'in' the relationship with you.

Okay, tell me what I really need to know,

cause the distant looks, they're starting to show.

I need to know the truth not lies.

Please, don't hurt me with those goodbye eyes?

I'm sorry I faded and ignored the signs,

I just couldn't bare for you not to be mine.

If we part now, hard will I pray,

that just good friends you and I stay.

I could see this coming from long ago,

so like a bandaid rip it quick and don't pull away slow.

There's too much time in this just to walk away and never look back.


I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I can't change the way you feel, I see that somehow.

I broke it, I can't mend it, I hate myself for that now.

My heart is not made of steel, nor should be ripped out and peeled.

You know I'm not a bad person, you just can't help the way you feel.

You did love me once but love me no more.

I know it's over but please, don't lock that door?

Leave it ajar, so we can work on our shit.

I know you don't wanna leave it like this.

Be kind, be honest with me in the way you depart.

Then maybe, just maybe, I can make a new start.

A rap-like sentiment to what is OVER! Why not look ahead and face the new. People come in and out of our lives. Happened to me and it teaches you to let go. No more thinking about them - bcos if you do you'll suffer. It's over and approach it as if it never happened. You'll know what I mean when they ignore you in the street, passing you like a stranger - so get used to it now.

Yeah, like they don't even know who you are! I get it, believe me! I'm happy just being me and being single. I don't need a man to complete me. You get lonely from time to time but that feeling quickly passes and have all the love in the world from my beautiful friends and family, thanks Jobe ;)
