Poem: When To Say Goodbye

I’ll never love you like I did that day
When you traced patterns of affection 
On my hips, light lines left with your lips, 
When you whispered “I love you”. 

It was the beginning of the end, 
The epitome of a lot of highs, 
And what I would think to 
When I tried to justify the lows, 

The bitter words passed between us, 
And I used that moment as a shield 
To protect myself from the truth, 
A weapon I used to wield, 
Before it grew weak as memories do 
With the passage of time. 

And slowly I began to realize reality, 
That you weren’t right for me
Anymore, 
That things had changed, 
That I was deranged for not knowing
When to say goodbye.
