Still Strangers

Still Strangers

A Poem by Amber Dawn Agin

is that all we'll ever be?

I’m not sad anymore
in case maybe you’d like to know
I could say I always knew the day would come
but I still remember that first week
the way my stomach dropped
“I think we should see other people”
as if you weren’t already, as if we didn’t know
as if.. as if..
I’m not bitter anymore though
well.. I guess maybe I am
sometimes I am
you left such a bad taste, my love
it’s the kind of taste that lingers
8, 9, 10 shots of Bacardi but it won’t rinse out
I knew I tasted her on your lips
now kissing makes me nauseous
that f***s people up, you know?
but I’m not angry anymore
I lost my voice too many times to scream
and the well of my belly holds nothing
empty and hollow like my heart when I see you
I didn’t even recognize you
we’re strangers crossing paths and nothing more and it is nothing new
you’ve been a stranger to me since before we said goodbye
//-we were better as strangers anyway//

Just your typical 19 year old girl that's kinda messed up in the head and thinks she can be poetic *shrugs* more..
