Now You’re Gone – A Poem

From the forgotten poems circa 2000 – 2005. This one looks to be on the topic of teenage angst. This one was selected by Jacob from the stack.

Now You’re Gone

It’s like smiling
When there’s the lump
In my throat

It’s like crying
Alone, Day after Day
No one will see

It’s like lying
All those words
You said to me

And it’s loving
Every minute act
That says you still care

It’s running away
As to not bother you
And sitting alone

It’s fearing you
Yelling at me
Screaming how I’m wrong

It’s watching you kiss
Hold this other girl
And me pretending

It’s pretending
I’m fine with it
And I’m your friend

It’s facing the fact
No matter the love
I feel for you

I’ll never get you back.
