I wrote my first poem last summer and I finally have the courage to post it.
I hope you guys find meaning and depth in this poem <3

beach, light, and cape town image

Once upon a time, was a life time ago
You watched me run and let me go
I never understood why you didn't care
But I guess that's life
And you wanted a breath of fresh air

I saw you between the skies and seas
And in that moment there were no fears
I saw the flowers grow and die
While thinking of your pretty lies

Even though I saw the end coming
It was a reason for a new beginning
So thank you for the pain you caused
Now i know how to live life without a pause
