To You

it’s a brighter day
when you’re gone and away
this feeling i’ve had
for the moments you’ve fled
for tearing my heart and all its parts.

i’ve reached for a lot of things, one of them being you;
all i found was a shadow.

when you weren’t here playing the games you usually played,
i had to be alone.

now that i’ve grown, it’s too late-
i’ve come up with my own games.
i resent you for it.

now every time i cry,
it’s because i’m forced to face you in some way.
forced to deal with the hate
and all the pain which stayed.

i havn’t found a reason, why,
but i pretend to forget-
it’s easier, i’ve decided.

it’s easier, in a way, not knowing….

To You
