i turned out
to be someone
that i know
most people
won't like

i wasn't like this before
it all came from pain
GrumpyTurtle Jan 22
i wonder if you think of me.
i wonder how you see me.
i wonder what i could have done,
to change how this all played out..
maybe it could have been better.

i talked to mom,
and she says its not my fault.
it wasn't my fault you left.
it wasn't my fault you went to jail.
it wasn't my fault for the fights.

i look through pictures.
i look through gifts and jewelry.
i look through our texts,
and i never realized i was constantly
made the bad guy to your victim.

you confuse me.
maybe that's why i took so much to heart?
we are both hard to read.
we are both difficult people.
we are both confusing each other.

sometimes i forget about you.
sometimes i forget about our problems.
sometimes i forget about the pain.
i like it when it happens,
maybe you like forgetting too.

cause you forgot to text me back.
cause you forgot to give me a call.
cause you forgot what you have done.
you forgot that we aren't exactly alike,
because you broke me to the point of malfunction.

i end up thinking about what we've come to,
the journey down our cracked and empty street.
what you've done cracked the concrete.
what you've done curved the lines.
what you've done went against the speed limit.

the girl i am now doesn't trust people so quickly.
the girl i am now isn't a pushover anymore.
the girl i am now is stronger than i've ever been.
and its because you've made me like this.
you changed me yourself, so... thank you.

i wondered for answers,
though i knew it wasn't my fault.
i look through our past,
because we are both pushing away the present,
but unlike you, i don't try to forget it.
you hope i forgot what you've destroyed,
but i cant, because what you've done has changed me
into the girl i am now.

thanks for the life lessons, dad.

I fell from the tree
and now I am
turning to Gold...
"You are changed"
So I am told
Hammad Nov 2020
You now complain
that I have changed...
don't you remember
What you told me?
that every time
We make love
we exchange - a trait
from each other...
and after all these years
I too
can't find myself
In me...

i don't see the stars in your eyes anymore, they look dull, sadβ€”empty even.

i don't see the fire in your eyes anymore, they burned out and there was nothing left but darkness.

i don't see the life in your eyes anymore, they seem lifeless and full of agony.

i have always loved your eyes, for they unvail who you are and what you feel. i have always loved seeing the ocean in your eyes that drowns me and hypnotizes me; you have changed.
a poem i wrote while looking at the mirror.

Some people erase my warm feelings for themselves by their blindness and deafness for my feelings and tell others in my absence that Spriha has changed.
Some people are like this.
Have you ever had such experience with such people ?

We think it's gone
In better times we could have played
As weather's changed
You slipped away
Remembering those blessed days

September sun invigorates
Glimpses of glory warmed
It's riches clasp the back of neck
Absorbed in chest and flow to rest

Time be spent so look ahead
Aim to be your best throughout the test
This place is finite so be our heads
More to life than meets the end
Undefined redemption led

I'll give this dress a new occasion
Maybe then it won't feel so painful
When I see you with her again

I'll fill these picture frames that are vacant
With new memories you haven't tainted
And I'll convince myself you've changed

I'll plan a new trip to San Diego
So I no longer think about graduation
When our families went on vacation

I'll walk away from the future that we painted
Redirect my destination
And I'll watch you become a stranger
