R.I.P

Goobye…
Goodbye I won’t see you again.
I stepped into another month and you’re now gone my friend. 


Step by step we went through it together.
The cussing and fighting was unexpected – we were meant for each other.


When your name was first mentioned, I got dragonflies.
In all your glory, you stared in my eyes, it gave you butterflies.


I had plans to give it to you with all my might,
but you were taken away from me in full flight.

  

Rest in peace – even though I’m living in pieces.
I called you mine.
I claimed you.


poemsIn my mind it was just the two of us,
I didn’t know time was waiting to make you the opposite of plus.


Now you can only be mentioned,
like a child that’s rude you’re on ‘forever-detention’.


It was too soon to let you go,
but time told me to work with the flow.


The visions I had for us got incarcerated,
I didn’t have enough money in my pocket – I felt devastated.


My nails were chopped because of endless anxiety,
counted each year, my contribution to this society.


But I can be hopeful once again, because I now have 2016.
RIP and a kiss goodbye to 2015.
