But I Know...

But I Know...

A Poem by Ian Faraway

Silent nights

Alone in the dark

Telling myself the same thing

“I can move on without her”

But I know it’s a lie


Loud thoughts

As I stare up at the stars

Telling myself the one wish

“I wish I didn’t need her”

But I know I do


Gentle whispers

When I look at a present she gave me

Telling me what I want to believe

“You’re not good enough”

But I know I could be


Piercing screams

Every time I think of her

Demanding something I can’t do

“Let go of her”

But I know I can’t


 Time slows

Torturing me when I think of her

As if to mock

“Look, you can’t get through a day”

But I know it’s getting to me


Everything dulls

When I live a world without her

As if to smirk its words

“She’s happy without you”

But I know I’m not
