Adios. Auf Wiedersehen. Namaste. Sayonara. Arrivederci. Au Revoir. Goodbye.

Today I start living for me.

Took me awhile but now I'm seeing clearly
I believed my world would end the
Moment we were over
And I believed in you.

I thought that we were something good
So I held on tighter when
I should've walked away.
I liked the sound of your voice telling me
you needed me
I thought I needed you.

I was always just playing the fool
My heart is now a casualty in a game I'm over playing.
I was just following after you
Now I'm making the rules
No longer your fool.

This broken soul will heal without a doubt,
but I was so wrapped up in you
I barely found my
Way out.
I loved the way my head felt safe upon your shoulder
Thought I really loved you.

I held my breath and closed my eyes but
Love didn't come and neither did I.
Your touch was warm your
Heart was frozen, fears keeping it

It’s our end but my beginning

It’s about time that I start living...

Author's Note: I wrote this awhile ago. It's extremely raw and very amatuer-ish, but appropriate to my current situation. I'm absolutely exhausted. I'm beyond exhausted, actually. I have come to the conclusion that people will only treat you poorly so long as you let them. It's not that I have had people in my life who have walked all over me, it's more like; I throw myself beneath their feet and say, "Could you just stomp all over me? That'd be great". I'm not playing the victim card, I'm not playing the "he-done-me-wrong" card, I'm just done playing all together. No more games.

That's all =)

yup it sounded like any other love poem in the beginning but the last two lines,
It’s our end but my beginning

It’s about time that I start living...

changed my outlook towards this saying its our end but my beginning explains everything in a few words.well written all i can say is that the last two lines took the limelight from the rest of the poem!!keep writing!!I'm a poet too and that's why i try to find other poets like me who are learning.after all there are very less poets so we can learn from each other.
