Best Of Me
Crystalrae States

Two searching hearts seeking a companion,

and both not knowing that they would find,

that special someone on the occasion.

You were standing there by yourself,

I was alone as well.

Though there were people passing through,

all my eyes and mind were focused on was you.

I decided to approach,

Cautious.

We threw out our names,

and began to walk.

A warm feeling began to creep up inside,

one I couldn't quite describe.

We began spending countless hours together,

laughing, carefree, time;

time that I never thought existed.

It did with you.

You bought me flowers,

You called me everyday,

You asked to hold my hand.

You made me believe in something I had not wanted to know was real,

Love.

You told me you loved me.

For the first time I knew it was real.

I told you the same.

We ran with that love, so pure, and true.

All I wanted was to be with you.


I scrambled to get my life together,

everything was falling apart.

I tried not to let it show,

but you knew.

You always knew.

As the tears fell down my cheek,

You would wipe them aside.

You wouldn't let me cry,

You told me I was better than tears,

that crying only showed they had got the best of me.

I trusted that statement,

I never let them see me cry.


I had a dream,

They killed it.

You knew.

You always knew.

You told me to leave them,

that I could make it on my own.

I knew I was too weak.

Why did you think I was strong?

Was it because I didn't cry?

It was because You told me not to,

I never shed a tear.


I had no one left.

I sat there alone.

Afraid, lost and discouraged.

The tears finally fell.

They kept coming.

They didn't stop.

I screamed.

The sobs grew harder.

I laid there on my floor,

wondering why?


You promised.

You said forever.

I believed you.

But now, the hollow words,

hit the unwelcoming walls,

as I repeat them to myself,

I love you, I love you.

I began to question the meaning.

What is love anyway?

Love is merely an expression,

to describe a feeling that one can not.

Love is not real,

for if it were, you wouldn't have left me.


I taped up the box today,

the one with all our memories.

The corsage from prom,

the pictures of us,

the wilting rose petals,

the cards,

I sealed it up.

I didn't cry.

Even though you weren't there,

I didn't want you to have the best of me.


I saw you with her today,

and it hurt me.

But I knew that you hurt as well.

As you glanced my way,

I knew you were lying to yourself.

Your hand stiffly holding her hand,

in habit form.

Her hand doesn't fit yours right,

and her lips aren't tender.

She doesn't make you laugh,

Your eyes, twinkle less,

As your gaze turned away.

I knew.

I always knew.


My life in pieces, scattered about,

And now You, were one of them.

In great efforts I attempted to find our pieces,

and place them back together.

My silent tears at night confirmed it impossible.

But I fought it,

You taught me that,

Never give up on something worth having.


I always fought for you.

They told me we wouldn't work.

They never supported us.

I told them they were wrong.

That they couldn't possibly understand.

I told them that I loved you.

They laughed.

Their laughter burned my ears.

We didn't work, because they wouldn't let us.


You saw me with him today,

and it hurt you.

But you knew it hurt me as well.

I was lying to myself.

His hand doesn't fit right,

and his lips aren't as tender.

He doesn't make me laugh,

but he lets me cry.


When we talked to each other today,

it made me remember,

I had forgotten,

how much I missed you.

We laughed, and joked,

like we always used to...

It almost seemed like it was before.


Oh to have before,

the sweet silent nights,

of looking at the stars.

Our walks around the block,

the bike rides for ice cream.

Oh to have before,

snowball fights,

sitting on the dock,

swimming in the lake,

laying in the hammock.

Oh to have before,

long talks in the row boat,

watching movies,

playing ping pong,

and being together.

Oh to have before

Before.


I try not to leave messages,

I try not to call.

Sometimes I just can't help it.

I want you to know.

You always do.

But not anymore.

You don't know.

You don't know how I've failed.

You don't know how I've tried.

You don't know how I hurt.

You don't know me.

And with that, a tear falls.

Just know, that you got the best of me.
