Things that I’ll miss

Published by at 12:58 am under Break Up Poems

Came around your place and knocked at your door
Saw stacked brown boxes all over the floor
You weren’t there, so I let myself in
The place was cleaned out, like you’d never been

I opened a box, marked: “Things that I’ll miss.”
Inside were some pictures of sunshine and bliss
A picture of us, where we’re holding hands
Some posters and CD’s of your favourite bands

A ticket, a postcard, a flower, a pen
All of those gifts I would give you again
I reverently hold them, then put them all back
Feeling my calm facade crumble and crack

I clumsily stand up, then crash to the floor
Crying for that which we had been before
Knowing it’s my fault that you want to go
Seems my reaction had been much too slow

I hear the door open, but can’t bear to look
Recall counting footsteps, the breaths we both took
Your hand on my shoulder, the peace in your smile
Crouching beside me, on very cold tile

You ask what I’m doing, your voice soft and pure
I look at your beauty and cannot be sure
I just close my eyes, place a kiss on your hand
Resigned with a sigh, I finally stand

I know why it’s over, it’s hard to let go
The look in your eyes tells me all I must know
I take in your features, before walking out
This has been the last time – I know without doubt

Outside on your front steps, I stop and look back
Look in through your window to see how you pack
Accepting you’re not mine, with one drawn-out sigh
Then whisper one last word, and it is Goodbye

    Wow, a bit of emotion here?
    The pain feels real, I like it a LOT.
