Poem: I Try to Escape

Many times, I try to escape
The memory of you
I try to drown
The false notion of love
That left my heart Bruise.

Many times, I try to erase
Your face, the thought
I was naïve, I was a fool
Loving someone, who thought
Of me, as crazy insane
In a world only to tear down
Not to build up, people like
Me, people like you.

Still, I wish to say thank you,

For showing me myself

And the mirror,

That resemble, somewhat like you!
