You left me a year ago,
Teary eyed and alone, wrecking my world,
I tried hating you but ended up loving you even more,
Next I tried jealousy,
But I got happier with each of your achievements,
I was jealous, but not of you, rather seeing you achieve all those things without me by your side.

I did try ignoring you,
But that would make me remember you every single day and night,
With no other option left,
I had to accept that though you had long forgotten me, I did love you even now,
It was painful, but I felt a sense of completion,
Strangely finding peace in loving you the way I wanted to, without your permission.
You walked away from me, but I chose to walk towards you like an invisible soul.
