I avoid any mirrors now, can’t bear to see sad eyes.
The ones you used to stare at, the ones that only cry.
I avoid conversations, they only lead to you.
The fakest smiles I try to give, the ones they’ll see right through.
I avoid so many many things to try to mend my heart.
The more that I avoid these things, the more the memories start.
Perhaps if I faced you, confronted the pain you caused,
All this avoiding would open up new doors.
But you would never listen, or stand before my heart.
If only I’d avoided you from the very start.

    This is truly an incredible poem. Short, sweet, vivid, and so relatable. Strikes such painful yet recent memories from within me, and the last line playfully reminds me of the only way I could ever ease this resilient heartache.
