You are NEVER alone in your troubles - there is someone who is always willing to lend a hand or a shoulder to you.
-L. Kimpton


Was I too fast? I do not know.
But it still hurt to watch you go.

I thought I knew just what you wanted.
But now, my memories of you are haunted:

Haunted by what we said and did,
Surrounded by you, my real self hid.

But when you left, I was finally free -
To love, to learn, and just be me.

So now I'll make my first right choice -
Without you to quiet my voice -

I found someone who likes me for me:
My heart, of which you didn't see.

So this is it; I'll say good-bye
To your ego and your lies.

When you leave, just know this -
I'll always remember our first kiss.

Breaking up with someone who you thought you knew is hard. I wrote this one because I have had to do this and the pain doesn't really go away - it only goes away if you completely let that person go.

It seems that way. I've noticed more freedom in your step. :)
