Reality Check
Author: Crush Me


It finally happened, I never thought it actually would but it did. We decided to go our separate ways after 7 years. You will always be my best friend, no matter if your not around. But I have come to realize what some told me for so long, he's not good for you, why to you stay to get treated this way. I never saw the all the things they pointed out to me. Why was I so blind? Why did I let you tear me down? It all gone but its for the better, even though now all that shows is a broken heart. I hope to over come this habit of reaching for the phone and looking for your name, when I think of it, its like a unbearable pain. I want to grow stronger, because I am ME, and you cant hold me down. I will go with the one I love now, who shows me a world of color, and not a shade of gray. Its hard to say but maybe I will get over you... its hard to watch you be with someone else too, and to hear things are well. But someday soon, i hope to smile and never look back. I will go on with the life God has planned for me. The girl sitting here is no longer held down by a weight over her shoulders, and restricted to things. This girl will grow and over come her sorrow. I'm just thinking about tomorrow and it being a new day, and step closing away from all of this.

Hey girl! The Crusher! Good poignant story. Heartbreaking. You know, sometimes when we don't want to do things we know is best for us, we can literally feel the longing and aching in our hearts. It's like, did I do the right thing or did I make the right decision?

Good poem Crusher!
