unapologetically unemotional about someone you've gotten smart enough not to love anymore.

without you

tonight i can't feel love in my veins for you;
it's as if the everflow of blood has gone dry.
close my eyes to look for the memories of us together,
but the forever in the memory has all but been erased.
i try to think of you in the way that makes me smile
yet nothing comes to me and no smile appears.
done all i could do to keep you still in my head;
apparently even that wasn't enough to stay you.
in my dreams, now someone else holds my hand, lays by my side,
as if i didn't notice when exactly you slipped silently away.

  Hey sorry I haven't checked up on your poems in awhile scince I added you to my fav's (which I still read) so enough with the sorry's i'm here to read your beautiful poetry child cause I love it ever so much lol.Ok let me start by saying that like this poem cause you told whoever that your through with his sorry ass there's nothing left in your relationship with him and he's been replaced I thought that was good way to end things lol. You also wrote that he aint even worth thinking about anymore and your just a faint memory but that was kinda harsh damn what he do to make you forget him like that was he a bad lover or brought nothing but unneeded drama lol. Any ways I promise you that I will check on more of your poetry. 1 Love

  This reminds me of a Halestorm song.

"I'm In love with somebody
Found someone who completes me
I'm in love with somebody,
Yeah, and it's not you."

(Great song btw) The poem is you could be telling this person these words while filing your nails or something equally nonchalant. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think thats what you were going for. And it came across nicely

  It gets worse. Drought settles to the bone and cracks the earth. Fish lie drowning in the heat and everything stinks briefly from the rot, luckily there are crows and buzzards to pick the meat from what is left, or this state might never give way to the desert of desolation. It holds a distant beauty of its own...

  the clarity of the part about trying to think of him so that you smile...that part I SAW and it was sad and hit deep. I'm sorry if this is factual or recent...

  i love this. love it so much it's goin on the favorites. i guess it just kind of stings a bit. but at least you got over him, whether in real life or as a figment of your imagination.

if i was happier. lol.
