Hello (Do you still…)
1/2 marathon poem #4
It’s been a while
Do you still lie behind your smile
Do you still think I think of you
Paranoid in your narrow view.
It’s been some days
Do you still scheme behind your gaze
Do you still think I give a dam
Your friendship just a nasty sham.
It’s been some weeks
Do you still wear tears on your cheeks
Do they still reflect all your shame
A mirror to your silly games.
It’s been some years
Do you still magnify your fears
Do you still want all you can take
Wrapped up in your playful fake.
What else to say
I am the one that got away
I am the lover
Who escaped your lie
So now forever
I say goodbye.
