Wasted my life searching for you
I got lost so many times before
I first laid my eyes on you
Even back then couldn’t feel it
It took some time before
Knowing what you came in for

Days started to shine up
Clear skies, clear air
Burning sun, hot sandy beach
Hours of the nights started to drop
Clear skies, clear air
Sparkling stars, we try to reach

Things started to turn around
Tables went upside down
Tension rushed in between us
Making up with you day and night
You turned off our dreams’ light
Smashing down what we had and plus
Awake thinking of you till dawn

Four seasons have passed
And now you’re only a past
It was never destined to last
Do not you try to come closer
You know I’m 26 by now
There’s a new difference I know
A woman from a whore
Just you are nothing more

Days started to shine up
Clear skies, clear air
Burning sun, hot sandy beach
Hours of the nights started to drop
Clear skies, clear air
Sparkling stars, I try to reach
Away from you
It’s all I do
Enjoying everything the way it is
Thank you dear lord for that bliss
“Forgetfulness” a true gift it is

You see I was never wrong about
My feelings at first there is no doubt
Now that I’ve wasted my time on you
Now that I’ve found my self away from you
Guiltiness is eating me
My senses
Which I let down to trust you
Which I let down by loving you
Which I let down crying on you
I made up with myself
Now you’re a part of an old shelf
I already moved on
Since you’re not the one

    1. That was a beautiful poem!
      Very well detailed and as I was reading the poem my mind began to imagine and draw the scenario.

  1. I really like your poem. I love how you started off with the feeling that you were still wanting this persons love, but then end it with saying you have moved on. Great word choice as well
