I’VE WRITTEN THIS POEM BEFORE
This poem is no new message, I’ve written this countless times;
Maybe this is just the visible version of it
I’m used to being left alone, and you can assume that I’m a fool
Love as we call it had a different meaning our dictionary
I’ve written this poem the exact number of times, I’ve been heart broken
I remember Kate in grade three;
She broke my tender heart and I broke the other half
Once bitten twice shy, they say right?
I’ve written this poem over and over again, at those moments;
You felt I subscribed to hiding my sanity, under the guise of humanity;
I learnt a lot of lessons already, and only if you knew that;
I really had some real affections but scared of heart bisections
I’ve written this poem, because I don’t want to miss you
I’m just a human with a fragile heart, and I heard love is heart piercing
I want you, yes I do but I don’t want miss you
Who knows if it’ll be better if privatized all these thoughts?
I’ve written this poem before
I’m not heartless maybe I just don’t want to be stupid, all in the name of love
I will still stare at you in my darkest hours, because I’ve been hurt; every time I open up
I’ve written this poem because I don’t want you to see me cry
How about loving you from afar?
