A Poem by lynnsl

Inside your empty goals

And behind all the lies

You sent us to a place

Where love simply dies


I can see the selfishness

In things you wanted to do

The future you had planned,

Only included you


A drink and a cigarette

Do those help you forget?

I know I’ll be okay

And that I can't regret


I’ve found a brand new freedom

I focus on myself

Of dreams and goals and happiness

Instead of someone else


& so as time moves forward,

In turn so do I

I know that what we had is gone

But I just can't seem to cry


Before I fall asleep at night

I reflect on the years

I see now things were never perfect

It isn't worth my tears


So close your eyes

To dream of dollar signs

And all the happiness

That you wish to find


I hope someday you realize

The steps you need to take

To find genuine happiness

Instead of something fake


Maybe you'll learn to open your eyes

But I will be long gone

I tried, I cared, I gave my all

It’s time that I move on
