"Who you Finna Try"


I loved You
I lived it
I was You
You not the same
Not equal
Still childish not tame

I open the book of the past
Reading between every single line
Wondering where I lacked
Looking for some way, some sign

But when I see you
I don't feel pain
I don't hurt
I feel broken

Before, I'd hear your name
Those glorious five letters
I'd jump and look around
Your smile made me better

But now,
It's fine and I've played my game
I completely lost
With no dignity,
With all my shame

So today I reflect
And when I hear your name
I will never forget you
A memory never the same
Your name.
