    old but good


    I knew what she was going to say
    before Her lips moved
    she never was good with words
    And stood in front of me
    mumbling and fumbling through her words
    trying to put what she wanted To say
    in I guess a “nice way”
    but how could you
    Tell someone whom you supposedly loved
    that you don’t want them anymore?
    She went on to tell me
    That we were moving in separate ways
    and things Between us were just not the same
    Soon after she stopped talking and took her
    Hand from mines kissed me on the cheek told me
    She loved me and said goodbye
    I watched as she turned and walked away and couldn’t
    Help but to reminisce on all the times we shared and how
    Late into the night we sat planning for the future when
    The present needed to be changed
    As I walked tears fell uncontrollably from my eyes
    People stared but I didn’t care didn’t even think to
    Wipe them away
    nothing at that moment mattered
    Cause from that second on ever step I took
    Carried me further away from you
    I used to long for tomorrows in each and every today
    But now I only wish for the love I lost yesterday

    pains of the heart
    difficult from the start
    each soul must grow
    and as you reap so shall
    you again sow


    flow on...

    O' lonely poet, why must you make me cry??? this is so sad/beautiful....but so real, because I'm about to do the same thing to some brotha that I love...but he needs to go. Thank u for explaining it from a man's point of view...its painful...but necessary non the less...hope u understand..that he understands.
