I am lying with a hangover

I’m lying with a hangover, but not from drinking’
When he said it was over, I felt my heart sinking’.
My heart was the titanic he was the iceberg
& my tears formed into the Atlantic.
I wasn’t ready to let go, I was still enjoying’ what I had.
Although the day we ended was 3years ago, it made me feel hurt, angry & sad.
                                                                      …                       …                      …
I saw him for the first time in 3years & I began to fall apart.
Because I thought I was drained & cleared of sadness in my heart.
I’m lying here with a hangover, when will it stop?
I thought to get sober, but then my heart started dripping’ love-drops.
When he use to sing to me I’d melt, I love the coconut & vanilla scent because that’s how he smelt.
Who knew that going to the Lord’s house I would find the person I adore the most.
I took in too much of his love that I felt like I had overdosed.
  …            …             …
I’m lying here with a hangover
I actually think I’m ready to be sober.
He stood so much taller than I.
I still dread the day when we said our goodbyes…
       …                …           …
I’m lying here without a hangover now.
Peace, joy, happiness is what I found.
I’m no longer hurt, angry or sad.
Although I still & will always cherish every moment & memory we had.
…               …          …

S/N: In order to have a sustainable relationship, you have to first be friends. I didn’t know then, and still trying to work it out now. A good friendship equals A great relationship!
