My Stand

To edit

This is not how I wanted it to end. 

You used to be my closest friend.


We loved and lost, but always together. 

Until one day you changed the weather. 


I think of you now with both love and hate. 

And sometimes I wish I didn't remember the date. 


Time and time again you've come into my life. 

I hope this was the last time. 


Self-care and self-loathing go hand in hand. 

But this is something I would expect you to understand. 


I educated and taught you the ways of the world. 

But you threw me away once you found your own swirl. 


Now I grow and have philosophies to show. 

I have my own path to help me know. 


I suspect no other can join me on this journey.

So I must let you go for eternity. 


I cherish our past time together. 

But I have passed through nether. 


An experience I don't expect you would understand. 

Yet this is my own plan. 


My, own stand.
