And I try to be serious for once,
But you laugh, despite my efforts.
You never realize that this means something,
That itís important to me,
But you shrug it off, as if I meant nothing.
And you laugh that terrible laugh.
Iíve heard you use it too many times before.
Iím through with you forever,
Your ďfunĒ was enough while it lasted.
But I have waken up from those midnight dreams,
And I see you for who you really are,
Which I never want to love again.
Itís not like Iím ever going to forgive you.
Itís not like Iíll forget like other hurtful times.
I am going to rid myself of this infection you gave me.
Love spreads, highly contagious,
But when you get your vaccination,
You forget all the memories that you looked on with joy.
And your view turns to regrets of all that you ever did,
Even on what you longed to do again.
Weíre all hypocrites, but too cowardly to admit it.
Just admit that you were wrong,
And maybe Iíll consider not hating you,
For as long as I live.
Iím not going anywhere with you, Iím staying here,
Never to say the words you long to hear.
So long, you demon, who was my friend;
Letís see if I learn to love again.
People say that love is patient, love is kind.
Truly, realityís love is clearly blind.
Iím done risking my heart for what I could be.
I wonít follow your shadow; itís time to be me.
Iím done with the darkness, confusion, and hate;
Iíll grow to be what people appreciate.
I donít really care if I leave you behind;
You were only a parasite, infecting my mind.
Author's Note: So I've always wanted to write a free verse poem,
but I can never seem to write one. This time I tried really hard,
but gave up and ended it rhyming after 2/3 of the way done. Well,
it was my closest attempt anyway. Hope you like it!
