For The First Time

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

If that poem is really true to you, then you're really lucky! I never forget about those that I love, and it always hurts when I see them.

Yeah, this poem was ture to me. I was oing through a really bad break-up before I wrote this, but then I realized the stuff that enabled me to move on. After a while, I wrote this poem partially as in inspiration to myself and partially as a spirit boost for anyone else going through a bad break-up. ;)

I'll put more as soon as I have it. Lol.
With me, I don't really like what I write unless I'm writing it when I'm feeling very passionately about something, whether it's good or bad. Lol
