move on. 8.17.2012.

what a relief

to say goodbye

gone from my life

but most of all

my mind

you taught me never

to let my guard down

so relieved to know

i'll never see you around

all too often

we confuse love with lust

after knowing you deep

lies, deceit, master of trickery, no trust

i do admit

i do not regret

for i am stronger now than ever

never will i forget

if you wish to try to break me down

i've built walls of steel, surrounded by water

you will only drown

seventeen short months

a life lesson learned

the fire you lit inside me

no longer burns

days go by

not one single thought of you

crosses my mind

i am living for me

shallow, superficial, counterfeit

please go, flee

i am sorry you lack substance

you know not who you are

traveling here and there

always searching

for someone you think you are

i love myself

inside and out

no matter where i am

i know who i am

without a doubt

i know i am not perfect

everyone has flaws

my heart now frozen

for the right one

it will thaw


i am released from your grasp

though it took some time

the worst has now passed

i now see the sad person you hide

i am no longer blind

i hope you can learn

to live by a decree

respect people

when they get too close

embrace them, don't set them free

gain morals, gain values

only then

will your conscience

harbor no more debris.

      Wow... get the girl some water. She's washing her hands. and if he has any brains he'd better be gone before she's done.
