I look away, walk on by
trying to smother the pain inside.
I look at you; you're looking at her.
Liquid shadows are clouding my eyes.
Fists are clenched, the palms scarred
from holding on when it's been so hard.
I will not stand by; I'm bound on the floor.
Memory abuses with no heed or regard.
My arms are open, hands to the sky
while rain weeps, and I feel it die.
Drown the roses; set flame to the darkness.
Embark on this journey, the heart's suicide.
I cannot deny you, but I do regret
the time well wasted since you I first met.
Move forward, motionless. I'm still holding on.
Eyes, lips, face...I long to forget.
Look away; I'll walk on by
so you can keep her by your side.
I drown alone; you pulled me under.
The lost one watches as the guardian dies.
- Title: Look Away
- Artist: Alri Milik
- Description: I had given up on writing anything (especially poetry) for a while, but recently I've been trying my hand at it again. I try to write more emotional poetry, and I would like any feedback. This is the story of being left for another when you're still holding on.
