Goodbye Stranger

The person I see today
so different from yesterday
Its like it wasn't you
It's like it wasn't me
Its as if this is all new
what happened in the past
not a soul knew.

Life happened so quickly
life happened so fast
my heart was once attached

Now I see you
but its not you
Its like it was a dream
I woke up and you were not what you seemed.
Am I the only one that dreamed this dream?

Now when I see you
when I look in your eyes,
all I can see is lies.
All that I believed to be true
everything I saw in you.
Such lies you spewed to me
how selfish you could be.
The words you spoke to me,
the experiences we shared,
are moments in time,
now unreachable, lost in the past.

I see you as I walk by,
I don't understand how you ever made me cry.
I now realize our relationship was a lie.
But this one fact,  I can not deny,
I wanted to believe this lie.
I wanted you to be true.
I wanted to start anew.
I look back now,
I should not have chosen you.

I have nothing more to say.
Maybe the words you spoke to me
will haunt you with the memory of me.

Goodbye to the person I once knew..
Goodbye to all the thoughts of you.

    wow sure I didn't write that? sounds familiar. maybe we see what we want to see and read into it to much when they show just a little. Maybe they don't see the best thing they'll ever see standing right in front of them. doesn't matter now cause their history and were blessed with poetry not obsessed with them. thanks for sharing and for the comment. take care and keep writing...it's therapy. everything I say keeps rhyming or is it just me? LOL!

    I know, I thought the same thing when I read your poem...lol. And yes this person is ancient history. I too write as therapy. After I wrote this and put things into perspective I was healed of the pain. I now realize that there is someone much more worthy and that is why this person had to vanish from my life.
