​I’m tired of writing about you.

But that’s all I can do to forget.

It’s funny because I write to forget;

And, I end up remembering.

All I know is that,

If you try to rebuild this

Torn down bridge

That you left half way 

Through the process, 

There’s no way you’re ever getting in.

I won’t be there to fill in those gaps. 

Fill them yourself;

With who you chose. 

I won’t be there on your birthdays; 

But I hope she’ll be there.

I won’t laugh at your jokes;

But I hope she will.

Just know that I won’t chase after you;

Especially since you’re the one who 

Walked away.

  1. Great writing. It’s raw filled with emotion and it’s real. While reading, I was really feeling this as is it were me a couple chapters back in my life! Two thumbs up young lady.

  2. I’m kind of have similar feelings myself. I find myself thinking this a lot, yet whenever my partner contacts me, I can’t help myself. Afterwards, I keep thinking that same thing over and over in my head, I hope you never come back.

    Though, I’m not sure what this has to do with the word “original”. These feelings are about as common as common as a failed relationship.

      1. You are definitely, right. I love that woman very much. I just think it would be better if I didn’t and that we stayed away from each other. She’s doing fine. I’m doing fine. Why bring the drama back?
