"there's no need to call me sir, professor"

I'm sorry if it seems like I'm ignoring you

you're kind of cool so it was never my intention to

Sometimes I wish that we had never met

that there had never been a stupid wrestling tournament

I care about you, a little too much sometimes

It's not right and will lead to my demise

But I idolized you, listened to every word you'd say

like January 9th 2017 when you told me to go away

and we were never the same since that day

You made up your mind and so I made up mine

I knew you wouldn't be there or care when it came time

You said we were close because it's what I needed to hear

at the time, I'm past that now, Just want to make that clear

I wish we were close like in 2016

when you said every day you wanted me to get clean

I did for a while but old habits are hard to combat

the demons of my past fighting hard for me to come back

You were the voice of reason telling me not to do wrong

the voice of hope I learned not to depend on

I used to write about you a lot, you were a big inspiration

BUt you're gone now, you got what you want, congratulations

we had a good run but everything has to end

so one last time, I say goodbye, hope I never see you again.

This has been sitting in a box of poems I wrote over a year ago. This is one of the few that I still remember vividly.
