This poem is in my novel Personal Heaven, but I wanted to share the original version of it with you all before it is published. Enjoy!
I don’t know why I do this
Staying by your side in even the proverbial sense is wrong
I should hate you
A thousand times a day I ask myself why
You shouldn’t matter anymore
Persona non grata in my life
You gave up on me a day later, didn’t you?
“Adios amigo” isn’t happening here
I stay alone in my sorrow
Still you’re holding fast to my heart
When I ask myself why
Your eyes, serenely blue, answer me
“THIS is why”
Your voice, hauntingly beautiful, sings to me
“It’s you” meaning “It’s ME”
How can I carry on this pain until I let you go?
I don’t think I can
So let me go to Hell for committing a sin against my better judgement
At least I shall have had a taste of my own
