"It Must Be So"

I wish that I could close my eyes,

Or gaze into the darkened skies.

I cannot stand to see, to hear,

The hollowness of your replies.

I've chosen now to push away,

It doesn't matter anyway.

I have said my last goodbye,

To every thought of yesterday.

The careless pain you've caused is great,

And for you, I cannot wait,

For when you realize your mistake,

It will be one day too late.

I do not want to let you go,

But I'll just let the aching grow.

I'm so tired of being alone,

But as before, it must be so.

Author's Note: To all two of you who noticed, it has been a while since I last posted and I apologize for that. I had thought I had posted this particular poem some time ago, but obviously it had escaped my mind. I know this is not one of my best, but not everything we write can be the best. Reviews are very much appreciated.
