I keep saying
Am over you
I've hoped to believe it
And I almost did
But truth be told
You are the stains in my mind
And the scars in my heart
You are the fears I live
You are what I look out for
In every man I meet

°•°•°•°•°

I said am over you
But I admit
You are the ink stains
In every piece of paper
I've thrown in the trash can
I read you in every line
Of every poem I write
I said am over you but damn!
You are nimbus clouds
Threatening to pour
Every second I breathe

°•°•°•°•°

I said am over you
But I guess
You are the biggest lesson
I've learnt
The one that left stretch marks
Etched on every pore in my skin
I guess you are the stench
I have to embrace
Learn to live with because boy!
It was never
My, your, it was our smell, our aura

°•°•°•°•°

I said am over you
But I also said
I would love you till forever
And you promised too
Only forever was the second
The pregnancy test turned positive
And you said
It was a little too soon
I said am over you
But your blood flowed in that foetus
So I see you in him
Every day
Of my life
And remember forever
Was mine alone
Never us

°•°•°•°•°

I said am over you
But how can I be over you
When you changed me
My life within seconds
Like six years of being together
Was nothing
I said am over you
But I meant you taught me
The art of accepting
Choosing, loving and letting go
I said am over you
But I meant you will always
Be part of me
But without the power
To damage me

°•°•°•°•°

I said am over you
But I will never be over you
Wouldn't want
To be over you because
That would strip me off
The woman I have become
I said am over you but I meant
I've learnt to live with you
In my skin and smile
While I tell tales of what we were

°•°•°•°•°

I said am over you
But boy you the x I solved
Unsolved
And resolved

°•°•°•°•°
