SEEING YOU

SEEING YOU

SEEING YOU HAS BEEN GOOD FOR ME.
SEEING YOU HAS LET ME KNOW THAT I'M FREE.
SEEING YOU, I FELT NO EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT.
SEEING YOU WAS LIKE SEEING A STRANGER.
NO FEELINGS OF CLOSENESS OR SIMMERING ANGER.
I FEEL FREE AS A BIRD PREPARED FOR FLIGHT.
I FEEL AIRY AND LIGHT, LIKE A BREEZY NIGHT.
WHAT WE HAD IS NO LONGER.
BEING ACQUAINTED WITH YOU HAS MADE ME STRONGER.
I KNOW MYSELF NOW AND I AM CLEAR.
YOU ARE NOT NECESSARY,FOR ME TO HOLD MY LIFE DEAR.
SEEING YOU HAS STRENGTHENED MY RESOLVE.
I HAVE NO WISH TO BE FURTHER INVOLVED.
I WISH YOU WELL ON YOUR JOURNEY.
I PRAY TO NEVER SEE YOU ON A GURNEY.
YOUR FRIENDSHIP WAS DEAR TO ME.
IT TAUGHT ME THINGS AND HELPED ME TO SEE.
MY LOVE FOR YOU WILL CONTINUE, MY FRIEND.
BUT ONLY FROM A DISTANCE, WE WILL NEVER BE CLOSE AGAIN.
SEEING YOU HAS BEEN GOOD FOR ME.
SEEING YOU HAS LET ME KNOW THAT I'M FREE.

I like that, because I seen my ex and did not even try to get her attention and she walked right by me, then stood at a distance. She choose money over happiness, but tried to come back to happiness and that door was closed and locked. I am now married to SAIZANLC

Good for you! There is nothing more refreshing than knowing you are completely over a person who you formerly loved. It is very freeing. Congrats on the marriage. Thank you for reading and commenting.......E

Being free is a beautiful feeling.... which we can only experience through being held captive.... we all live and learn from every situation... sweet!

This was beautiful!!! I can relate - and having that freedom and closure is incredible - especially if it took a while for that to transpire and to let the person go. I have a situation similar to this going on right now and feel so happy to be free from it - and happy you are too. this was beautiful.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
