Don't Look Back

Just keep on walking,
A small voice said.
Don't dare look back.
Look straight ahead.

Yes, so many things
Have changed.
Think they'd stay
As you arranged?

Be strong and brave.
Calm your fears.
Keep that chin up.
Dry your tears.

Yes, love hurt
And broke your heart.
Keep your head
And heart apart.

Don't cry over
What you have had.
At least you had it.
Don't be sad.

This will be tough,
But time will heal.
Perhaps a new life
Will then reveal.

You are not new
To this whole game.
You gave your best.
You're not to blame.

The hardest thing
There is to do
Is love someone
Who does not love you.

So is it worth it?
What's to gain
When you love someone
Who brings you pain?

Just walk away
And stand up tall.
Count your blessings,
One and all!

I think everyone can relate at some point in their lifetime. I went through something like this recently where he cheated on me and broke up with me, but he still wanted to hook up and not have anyone know we were seeing each other. Then I was forced to not see him or speak with him, but I went back when I had the chance. He had a girlfriend and didn't tell me and still decided to hook up with me, but what was wrong is that I went back, and he should have just stayed in the past.
