Nostalgia

Nostalgia

A Poem by De'Andre
"

Damn, I miss the old days.

"
Here I stand remembering what you used to be
Most of those memories were bad; the good I just can't see
But there are somethings that left an everlasting impression
So here me out as I stand to give my first and last confession

At one point, you were beautiful and your soul was so pure
You grew to be a disease that I just couldn't cure
My love and respect for you slowly began to fade
This new you cut me deep, but I only licked the blade

I didn't want to give up on you even though I walked away
Your motions said leave but you heart said to stay
I told you I wouldn't forgive you because of your change
I said I was leaving but I still stayed in range

When this new you arrived, your essence left without a sound
Each day I peacefully waited but you never came around
The days grew cold without you around to warm me up
I'm in pain when I go for a drink only to find an empty cup

On the days when it rains, I just wish for some hail
If you're not around, how am I to prevail?
How can I move on after such a mistake
I can turn off the lights but I'll still be awake

I can not pretend that what is dead is alive
The strength that I need from you death I'll deprive
It is the only possible way that you would survive
It's the only way you'd still be alive



       .......... It's the only way what once was is alive
