“It has been a beautiful fight.
– Charles Bukowski
Maybe things do work out
That they knew what they were talking about
When they said “time heals all”
And though the fall may leave scars
To live is to be marked
So wear them with pride
I think it’s time that I tried
To forgive and forget
To wish you the best
And to live my life better
To stop wondering whether
The pain was worth the pleasure
You weren’t my forever
And I’ll leave it at that
There’s no going back
And with that I will move forward
And with that I will move toward
The light – a flower toward the sun
I’ve decided to believe
The best is yet to come.
You said “I love you but I’m leaving.”
When did you stop believing?
I guess forever’s not as long
As you imagine when you’re young
Since when did love unconditional
Come with stipulations?
All that I believed of love
Was just a fabrication.
The truth is
When you stopped believing in you,
I did too
I couldn’t find the ground to stand on
But I want you to know –
There was I time I would’ve stood for you,
Bent for you and broke for you
But life is just a joke to you.
