The title's in latin, because I felt like being creative and I've been taking the class for years. The poem is self-explanatory yet again.

I don’t understand
How you look at me with those eyes
Expecting me to comprehend
The truth behind what you hide.
And I can’t keep hanging on
To a lost memory
And I don’t want to lose you
But I definitely can’t lose me.
I know you act different
When you’re with your new friends
And don’t even attempt
To talk with me as you pretend
That nothing’s missing between us,
You know as well as I do
That we’ve been disconnected for
Longer than this breakthrough.
This is the final blow for me,
I thought I could keep my pace
But knowing I can’t turn back the present
Makes the decision to close this case.
Now that I don’t have you,
There are limited places left to turn,
And I’ll watch you as a different person -
Hoping for the past in yearn.
But I can’t keep living in dreams,
What I’ve lost, I’ll let disappear.
And pretty soon I’ll start all over
Disbelieving in the concept of fair.

Haec poema amo.

That's probably not right. Oh well. We're not taught to compose anyway.
