You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. -Mae West


For once, my heart is at peace
I've signed the deal
It's over and done
I finally realized you weren't the one
Yes, you played a song on my heartstrings
Bittersweet and long
I, however, am strong
I won't say it wasn't fair
But I will say it was wrong
Never mind that, though
For I have moved on
I have been set free
From these chains of captivity
At last, I can look at you with a smile
That is sincere
I can now say we had our history
Our time
Our troubles
And now we're fine
That doesn't mean that we talk, though
Or that we're even friends
And I'm okay with that
For a while, I wasn't
I need to do what's best for me
And right now, that's not you
I don't know if it ever will be.


The author's comments:
I wrote this piece today- I am in the process of getting over someone who was a close friend, and we came close to dating twice. He felt like he couldn't trust me, and wasn't willing to make a friendship work. This is about the same guy that was in "I Don't Wanna Wake Up". He's not a jerk, he's a sweetheart. He's just not for me.

Life is a maybe. Death is for sure. Sin is the cause. Christ is the cure. :)

Love is the breath of God, and prayer is the melody that makes it sing.

If you cant annoy someone, there's no point in writing.

Love is overrated, marry for money.

This is very nice. I agree with the other comment, I can feel the sincerity in it. You are very talented, so keep it up. :)

Aw, thank you! I love to write, and I pour myself into it. It is my outlet. It took me a while to get to this point. As of tomorrow, this incident happened two weeks ago.

Very nice poem. I like the language and the flow. I can feel the sincerity in it. I especially like how common sense it is.
