i cant take this

i cant take this
i can do this no longer
i refuse 
i wont think about you
i wont remember that time
i wont think about how you hurt me
all i will remember is my friend who hurt me
because thats all you are
your a friend...
somewhat of a friend anyway
i cant even imagine how dumb i feel
you make me feel like i left myself..
left myself and went to another body
when we were done...i didnt even know me
thats the worst feeling ever...
not even recongnizing yourself..
what does that mean?!
you made me forget myself!
your not going to do it again.
im done.
no matter what.
mark my words.
im done with even you.
im done being the one that is wrong all the time
im done letting you walk all over me
im done not being me for someone that doesnt even want me
the real me...not the me you made me be...

    What an emotive poem. It's so easy to lose yourself in another person, and then have to find yourself after they leave. So tragic.

    One good piece of advice that was given to me many years back was not to let a single moment in life define you...Rise above and you will see the light beyond the sadness... Hope your well and your soup mail made me smile... you are a true friend... Michael
