A poem about closing the door on unrequited love and learning from past mistakes……..
‘The old me has been around for a very long time
Going through the same old motions, time and time again
For those things I couldn’t have
Never happy just being me.
But now is time to say goodbye to that old me
That old me is dead and gone.
Never to return to this world again.
Never to return to this life again.
The new me begins today.
Hello new me, bring on this world I am meant to be in
I am excited and waiting to see what happens next.
To be born anew, given a second chance
Not looking back at all that hurt and anger and resentment
Not looking back at all that guilt and hurt and anger
Not looking back on those feelings of loss
Not looking back on those feelings of unrequited love.
Unrequited love can go and get stuffed
It stuffs with your head
It stuffs with your heart.
So go and get stuffed unrequited love
Unrequited love is unrequired.
Unrequired is this unrequited love
No longer requested this unrequited love
If they don’t love me then move on.
Keep moving on until the one you want wants you back.
No more losing heart over those that don’t love you back.
Keep being strong, be bold and be brave.
No more getting hurt by unrequited love.
Just move on if they want to play games.
If they don’t know what they want, then just move on to the one that does.
Yes it will hurt for a while but keep moving forward, eyes always forward.
Never divert behind nor sideways.
Always looking forward, forward, forward you must look.
Be brave, be strong, you can do it and it begins today.
So burn all those old books.
Burn all those old pages.
If they don’t like you then move on.
If they can’t say what they really mean, then move on.
Move on, keep moving until the right one comes along.
Not long to go now before that one comes your way.
This one will be forthright and will take you by surprise.
But it is the one so just go for it.
This one will know what it wants.
This heart will be one with yours.’
