This is a poem I wrote months after a fight with my friend. Actually, it felt like a war. I refer to this as my epiphany. It wasn't like I really held a grudge, I was just angry at all the things that happened and here it is all laid out. How I feel about it now...

I know longer loose sleep on this. Or at least not as much.

I saw you across the way
My heart sunk into my stomach
On the tip of my tongue were words
I needed to say
On the tip of my tongue were words
I needed to scream
 
I loved you as the friend
You always were
I love you as the sister
You pretended to be
But you hurt me
You hurt me so much
I lost sleep because of you
Long sleepless nights were spent
Because I laid there pondering
Thinking about what happened
Between us
 
I saw you across the way
My feet brought me toward you
All my fears
All my hate was about to be comforted
 
You abandoned me
Forsaken me
Left me behind to die
Without a soul to stand beside me
 
There were many things I needed to say
Too many things I needed to shout
But I never made it to you that day I saw you
I came close to you
Only to see
Happiness radiating around you
 
Deep down inside
I know I hurt you, too
I am not the only victim in this battle
But since I can’t read minds
I don’t know who was hurt worse
 
All I know is that day when I saw you
I was about to explode
A ticking time bomb of bitter words
All those months I had been waiting
To say
To shout
So many words
But none of them left my mouth
As I watched the happiness that glowed
In your eyes
That radiated on your face
 
New friends came
Old family came
They came to rejoice with you
To celebrate something only you would understand
 
I knew it wouldn’t be worth it
It wouldn’t be worth saying all those words
Even if they were trembling
On the tip of my tongue
 
That day I left you
Without you knowing my whereabouts
The impending doom that was so close
But ignorance is bliss
Something inside of me told me
That you deserved that bliss
 
I forgive you for all the things you’ve done
It’s been a hard and lonely road
That you’ve forced me to travel
But at least tonight I can fall asleep knowing
At least one of us will have a happy ending
 
And…
For some peculiar reason
I’m glad it was you
