What started out as a remembrance/nostalgic poem turned into a poetic rant that just kept escaping through my fingers. The bolded statement is the most important thing I’ve tried to say. But, it’s not like it matters, because we are over. Love doesn’t live here anymore. But, I know it will when the right person has the key to unlock and open my heart again.


It’s been a year.


A year since we


Had everything


Figured out. Had


Everything we wanted. 


Or at least what


We thought we


Wanted. What we


Thought we needed. 


We were together


Young, but together


Apart. Not in sync. 


Our steps were


Incomplete and


Out of time. 


It’s been a year. 


One year. I wish


I could still make


That smile appear


On your face, again. 


The smile that cured


Me. The smile that


Changed me. The 


Smile that saved me.


The smile of the mouth,


Of the lips, that spoke


The words “I love you.” 


The smile of the mouth,


Of the lips that always


Promised to stay. To 


Never leave. No matter


What. What happened


To that smile? I 


Believed everything


It said, it revealed. 


And those eyes…


They gleamed with hope


And love, even in


Suffering. 


It’s been a year.


And things have changed.


We have changed.


Evolved, grew, and 


Developed into 


Brand new people.


No where near the same,


But still dying in shame. 


You thought you were


Meant to be alone.


Yet, you said your heart


Beat for me and only 


Me, and if that were 


Even the slightest bit


Of truth, you wouldn’t


Have left, 


Have rebounded, again, 


For the second time. 


Especially when it hasn’t


Even been two weeks


Since you declared the


Demolition of our relationship.


It’s been a year.


We were getting


Ready and hyped


For prom. 


For graduation.


For college.


To be together. 


And now, take a look


At where we are now. 


Strangers; Enemies. 


You’re a ghost to me. 


A ghost that haunts me. 


I hope I’m a ghost in you. 


I hope my ghost tells you


That you need to learn


How to not be with


Someone for a while.


I hope my ghosts haunts you. 


You’re the everliving ghost


Of what once was. 


But, we’re better off. 


Separate. You do not


Complete my puzzle.


You are not my


Missing puzzle piece. 


You are not my


Knight in shining armor. 


You are not the


Love of my life. 


You’ve hurt me, and


It’s my turn to be


Selfish, and do things


For me, to make 


ME happy. I’m through


With trying to please


YOU and make 


YOU satisfied. 


I don’t need people


Like you in my life. 


Your negativity brings


Me down, and I don’t


Deserve that after everything


I did for you. 


It’s been a year.


Everything has changed


Between us now.


But just know this


One little thing:


No one’s gonna love you more than I do. 


And because I say this…


It does NOT mean that, 


When you come running


Or crawling, or


Crying, or


Pleading, begging for me


Because you’re unhappy,


Miserable, or


Even ”Sorry”,


I will take you back.
