I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together

I saw you for the first time in 54 days,
today I saw you again.
The way you looked at me, and how time stood still.
You walked away from me,
and it nearly drove me crazy.
Everyday I longed to see you,
and now I wish I didn't.
How could you walk away and leave?
I'm begging you. Please!
Just say one word!
A simple "hi" or maybe "hello"
Don't I deserve your decency?
Yet you still walked away.
I saw you again today, and I said nothing.
There was a million things to say.
I don't understand how you could only walk away.
How could you betray me?
I'm content with this pain,
but that won't change your mind.
I miss the days when you were mine.
I saw you again today, do I have to wait 54 more days?
100? How long?
I wish I could move on and say "bye"
It only takes one measly "Hi"

I wrote a series of about 140 poems after my best friend and I stopped talking, but this is one of the hardest ones I had to write.
