Abigail Johnston, Grade 9
Not a day has gone by since the summer night you left
when you havent been the last thing on my mind, weighing on my chest
please tell me i mean nothing to you,
that you never liked me from the start.
because it hurts much less when i'm certain there was nothing to tear apart.
when i know there was no opportunity to be missed.
that we could never be no matter how much we believed
the love really did exist.
I knew that you would shatter my heart
but hope remained within me i could make a brand new start
even when i saw the jagged rocks ahead,
I still wanted the excitement that preceeded the pain i bled.
this heart would break a little more
but its easier than loving you
to forget the happiness i felt
when i believed dreams could come true.
