Words Don’t Make It True

I moved on and I said it out loud
Then why does the sight of your
Face turn that decision around

I forced myself to forget I loved you
Then why is it that the simple mention
Of your name makes that seem untrue

I knew that I couldn’t keep doing this
To myself and so I wrote a poem to
Forget you and even a song and a list

Just the sight of your face or a memory
Of your laugh can make my heart want
To somersault off a cliff and into the sea

I just want to stop feeling this way
I swear I’ll do anything it takes
Just to never go another day
With my heart breaking
When I see your face

I really thought it was as easy as
Saying the words and wham!
The feeling was meant to pass

Every day from then till now
Has been about me burying
My feelings six feet underground

Every tear that I shed and every
Word that I wrote has been an
Attempt that is actually foolery

If someone asked me if you still
Make my heart flutter I’d say no
And the truth in that won’t be nil

If I had to look at you one last time
My body wouldn’t ache for another
Chance to ask you what was my crime

I just want to be free of this feeling
That’s been consuming me and making
It impossible for me to keep believing

I can’t let go or move on
I can’t forget you and
I can’t even stay strong

I just want to stop feeling this way
I swear I’ll do anything it takes
Just to never go another day
With my heart breaking
When I see your face
