Long Gone

I'm getting sick of this
Of all these tricks
Are you mine or not?
Make up your mind
Cast your lot
We're not playing rock
Paper, scissors, SHOOT!
Let's get to the root
of this problem
Don't be a fake
If only for your sake
Spit it out!
Go on, Shout!
If that will make it better
Or am I gonna have to sever
This relationship?
Cause I can't take the lies
I'd rather say goodbye
Why can't we talk?
Let's take a walk
Oh wait, you're busy?
I'm sure you are
Going away so far
I try to make this work
But you don't want to
Do you?
What happened to us?
Don't you trust
me anymore?
I'm sick of crying
I'm tired of trying
When you obviously are done fighting
For me
Why should I continue?
You are not the person
You used to be
I'm only sorry
It took me SO long to see
Your long

    People are in a constant state of change, the magic comes from being able to stay in cinque. Kind of a dance of sorts. At times the others toes or yours will be stepped on. If you can laugh it will be all the more fun. When you get it right it is truly breathtaking. Your partner can be the most amazing gift in the world and you will constantly discover new ways to dance together.

    That was a beautiful way to put it! Absolutely right. Everyone is always changing, and sometimes it's not the same as it once was. If you can endure through the tough times and continue trying to make it work that's what counts. :)

    My dad... aggressive? Hahah... he's the OPPOSITE of aggressive when it comes to driving. The light will turn green and he will be in La-la land for like 5 minutes before he thinks, "Oh I guess I better do something now!". Just thought I'd let you know... lol!

    Can you say overly complicated? This is what worries me... the explosion of drama. Can't love just be simple and straightforward (guess I'm asking for too much... lol). I understand one must brave it out because it's not always butterflies and rainbows... but it takes TWO people to be in a relationship. I hope I don't become the person that's playing rock, paper, scissors while life passes me by... well expressed!

    Hahaha, yep, it takes a lot of time and effort to make it work. Wish it wasn't so much drama but if the person is worth it... However this poem was actually written for one of my "used to be" best friends. I got so tired of her ditching me. Decided to write a poem about it, lol. Thanks so much for your comment, Timothy!

    Not to put light on this, so forgive me, but can you imagine a female reading this as part of a commercial for That'd be hilarious. On a serious note, love/friendships/relationships should never, EVER be this difficult. Keep it simple or keep it moving. Cheers to this piece!
