Just Fine

I Don't Hold On,
I Just Let Go,
Because Your The One Who Left,
For Reasons I May Never Know.

I Tried To Understand,
But You Wouldn't Let Me In,
You Put Up That Wall,
Not Knowing Felt Like Sin,

I Tried And Tried To Convince You,
For Nights That Lasted Forever,
But In The End It Was Clear To Me,
We Would Not Stay Together,

So For A While We Went Our Seperate Ways,
We Both Needed Some Time,
You Found Another Girl,
But I, I Was Just Fine

When We Talk Now All You Can Say Is,
You're Sorry For Hurting Me,
But I Say It's Ok, I'm Good Now,
The Chains That Weighed Me Down Before Have
Disappeared, I Have Been Set Free

You Ask If It Was Worth The Pain,
Maybe It Was A Mistake
I Respond To You "It Was Love,
So It Was A Chance I Had To Take",

There Are No Hard Emotions Now,
Hate Is Not Something I Feel,
For I Could Not Resent Something,
So Vivid And Surreal,

The Memories Are Nice,
The Ones Of Me And You,
But They Are Only Memories,
For We Are No Longer One, But Two

I Do Not Know What My Future Hold,
But I've Learned For The Best, For Sure
Love Can Be A Wonderful Thing,
But Also A Disease Without A Cure

So When I See You Now,
And My Heart Begins To Shine,
I Remind Myself "He Is Your Past,
And Without Him You Are Fine

I love how u transistioned through this. Your pain showed through in the beginning, but by the end it was obvious that you were on your way to not needing him. Beautiful poem.

This is absolutely beautiful!
You'll be perfectly fine without him. If he didnt have the decency to put you in his life dont even think twice about putting you your own!
