For the first time since you left me,
I was able to look at you without pain,
For the first time since you left me,
I could truly be happy with you only as my friend,
For the first time since you left me,
I could honestly hope you're happy with him.

Each day gets a little easier,
And each day I laugh a little more.
Each day life begins to mean something again,
And each day I learn to love again.
Each day I care about you a litle less,
And each day I grow a little stronger

I still hear the words you spoke, and I still feel your warm touch,
But the memorie no longer hurts.
Every day before now I felt your gaze like scalding knives.
And every day before now I couldn't bare to look at you.
For the first time since you left me though,
I stand strong and feel no pain


The author's comments:
This was written after my best friend and I split up. I have read this to a few people, and one said that it was an emo, deppressing, 'I can't beleive she left me' poem. If you feel this way after reading this then I'm sorry to tell you that you missed the entire point of the poem. This poem is about getting stronger and learning to love and trust again.

WOW, i really love thiss!! the repetition really adds depth and feeling because it's kind of like.. if you say it over and over again enough, it becomes reality. and your repetition is like you're getting stronger and stronger and feeling better. honestly, i found that the ending was weaker in comparison but i can't really point out what it is. I guess i don't like the "scalding knives" simile much, but really, your poem is amazing (:

I love the theme here: I'm a huge fan of being 'strong' and independent. I thought that the emotion was clearly and eloquently portrayed. Keep up the good work!

i like the hope and freedom this poem has...i can relate to it...for me, feeling like that, is like having chains being cut off. i don't think it is an emo poem...it's emotional, but it's not doom and gloom. Everyone can relate to this! good job :)
