Not Again
Author: The Lost Girl


Here I am, getting better,
I'm past the pain of letting you go,
but there you are, sending this letter,
and now I want to let you know-

The first time you left here, I cried for days,
and started cutting through a crimson maze.
I eventually was over it and my days were great after,
I accepted you weren't here, and I didn't miss your laughter,
but then you tell me you are coming back,
Because where you're at now, joy they lack.
But you said that you're not going to be here for very long,
You're here until you find a new home, then you're gone.

Well, I want to say, screw it, I'm through.
I'm not going through that pain again because of you.
You left me once, and that time it was alright,
but doing it again, I won't be able to fight.
To go through that pain again will be too much to bare,
I'll be injured for life, sitting with a blank stare.

I want you to know, I've gotton over our friendship,
So, now I'm gonna give you a little helpful tip,
Don't leave a friend, then expect it to be the same,
when you come back because your new life was lame.
They probably won't be there, they have their own life,
and to change it all for you just cuts like a knife.

If you're leaving, then leave,
please, don't talk to me,
You are the past,
something that didn't last,
I no longer care I lost you,
I'm sorry, really, but I'm through.

------- Author's Notes -------

If you want to know what this poem is about, I'll go ahead and tell you. I went through a lot of pain when I lost a very close friend when they moved. They called me, and told me they were coming back - but they weren't staying. I told them I wasn't going through the pain again that came with losing a special person. I just couldn't do it again.

I know how you feel. It's hard to lose someone twice. I wanted to say you have a great way with words and poetry. I don't usually read a lot of poems on this site, because they are hard to understand. Yours are very catchy and heartfelt, keep it up, you've got talent.
