Let It Be

Stand there, still, silent,
Watch, feel, percieve,
Better, it is that way,
Appreciate, I do,
When you smile,
While at a distance.

Questions unanswered,
Words unspoken,
Hope, wish, still alive,
Do not come near,
Do not speak,
Do not kill what I cherish.

That memory I still hold dear,
The person I still love,
A part of me still holds on,
To a part of my being that still thinks,
There is part of me you still like,
A part that is still not dead.

Do not poison it, let it be,
Your words are venom,
So just stay there,
Keep smiling, let me be,
Where I am, as I am,
The way I want to be.

Fare thee well

Hey there, still hanging around are you,
Barely must I say,
Flimsy bonds, ugly memories,
Messing around again you are.

Goodbye, I said, tried to smile,
It hurt real bad while I did,
And when I looked back all I saw,
A coldness, I never knew.

Time flew, as did we,
Good riddance, I said to myself,
But not before long, did I have to see,
You crawling back again.

It seemed different this time,
A breath of fresh air almost,
Did not want to, yet I had to,
And knew you were smiling too.

Then it happened again,
That famous disappearing act of yours,
Disgusted, confused, but I always knew,
This wicked, evil side of you.

Be gone, old friend, be gone,
And take all of it while you leave,
It was good, still could be,
But it would take things you cannot do.
