I've Forgiven You

June 11, 2012
I woke up to your voice today 
Wondering where all the time had gone. 
Two years ago from now
I had given it my all. 

I woke up to the song you wrote me
And believe it when I say 
I gave you all the time of my day 

Do you remember it? 
The time we shared 
With incense swirling in the air 
And your fingers running through my hair. 

Where had all that time gone? 
I remember thinking you were my one 
It was a fairytale
A dream
It was my personal make believe 

You were the prince with all the answers 
And I was the princess with nothing to give 
You and I were going to run away 
See a place 
Where everything was going to be okay.. 

I woke up to the song you had written for her first. 
And I'll admit it, it really f***ing hurt. 
Because I know my fairytale was ending 
The page was turning 

I was listening to your song the other day 
Wondering when the feeling went away. 
Three years from a week ago 
Was when you had to go. 
And I just want to tell you 
That I forgive you 

I just want to tell you
That I've forgiven you

Thank you so much for that. It was hard, especially because he outright just quit talking to me.. didn't even say goodbye really. so thank you. it means a lot. I'll look at some of your work.

Wow that is so interesting. You sound like a really strong person. That is amazing that you were able to let go of your anger and forgive him. You should check out my poetry. I would love to hear your feedback:)
