The Other Half of Me
I’ve waited for years, descending from a life of tears
Memories of what we had, remain right here
I’ve lost myself, when I succumbed to you
Now tell me love, what am I to do?
I speak a language you don’t understand
You were my idea of a perfect man
But all isn’t fair in love and war
For now I’ve closed our last door.
You were everything to me; my heart
You gave me love from the very start
Though darling, you’ve taken away
Every part of me lost till this day.
This is the reason for what I’ve done
This is no longer a game I never won
I’m beginning again, finding that there is no end
Until the very rules of history, are the ones you bend.
I loved you like never before
Though you’ve taken all of me and more
In this shattered mirror, I’m not what I see
Because now, you’re a distant memory.
No longer, the other half of me.

About This Poem:
This poem is a basic description of everything I have gone through in the past few months, and being able to speak about what I’m feeling through the language I know best (Poetry) makes it especially dear to me. Everyone faces hard decisions in their lives, but no matter how much it hurts, making the right decision is never wrong in the end.
