Once Again

A Poem

By Elise Published 3 years ago 1 min read

Once again you stand before me, 

wanting to love me.

And once again I want to believe you.

But I must not, 


Only in my absence, 

only then do you feel something for me,


I believe it is no longer love that you feel,

only lust.

Perhaps that's all it ever was.

Yet you want to pull me back into your world.

But I do not belong there.

Do you not remember?

You told me long ago,

made it clear that I have no place by your side.

You distanced your heart,

so I distanced myself.

Now all that we had has become cold as death.

And when the day comes that I disappear, 

never to return,

you'll search far and wide,

but I'll stay far out of reach, 

my love,

never to be fooled by a fool who never learns.

And once again,

we've come to an end.
