Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful day! I am sharing with you all another original poem. I wrote this poem back in August about some emotions I have been feeling and thought I would share this with you all!
Free From You
I used to look into your eyes
And see the entire world in your eyes.
I used to dream about the life we would have together.
I used to see hope and disappointment in your eyes.
Now all I see is regret and happiness.
You changed me.
You taught me to put myself first.
You told me to settle for less.
You brought joy to me with every interaction.
You never loved me.
I hope I taught you something.
Whether it was to work hard or to never give up on the things you love.
I hope you learned.
But maybe you didn’t?
Maybe you vanished every memory about me.
Was this a sign?
Is it a blessing?
Am I thankful that I don’t miss you?
I don’t know anymore.
I know I feel different.
I feel different because you love someone else.
I tried to hate her, it didn’t work,
I saw her as a beautiful, gentle person.
I saw her as a perfect match for you.
I only saw myself in pain.
I hope she brings out the best in you.
I hope she is the reason for your happiness.
I hope she makes you smile all the time.
I hope she laughs at your stupid jokes.
It pains me to say this, but I hope she loves you like I did.
I used to love you.
So, I thought,
Or maybe it was the idea of you.
Maybe it was convenience.
It probably wasn’t love.
It’s hard to say what I felt for you was real.
It’s hard to believe you are gone.
It’s painful to not love someone back.
It’s disappointing to see you as a different person.
It’s relieving to know you are just another fish in the ocean.
Now I look into your eyes, and I don’t even recognize you.
You’re a changed person with a huge ego.
You were once a loving, kind, and optimistic person.
You are now a wise, good-looking, egocentric man.
I once saw you as my hope.
But I don’t hope for you.
I don’t hope for you to come back.
I don’t want you back.
I already forgot about you and all you have done to me.
What good is it if you come back?
To reunite with me?
To try again?
To break my heart again?
To play me? To confuse me?
I can’t go back.
I can’t do that to myself.
I love me more than I have ever loved you.
I care too much about myself.
I lost you and I won’t lose myself.
Not you, it will never be you.
I’m only regretful for the things I didn’t say to you.
I’m happy I didn’t pursue you.
I’m on my own and I finally feel free.
