What We Had (2012)


What we had was true .

When you left everything went blue 

I waited all my life for you

I wonder if you still feel what I do 

I promise you'll always be mine 

No matter what 

I'll always be there for you 

I'll be the nigga who always has your back


For the last time all I'm saying is I want you to hear me.

Three words that hold significance to me.

I have never been loyal

I always end up sad.


The Pain I have 

Causes the shame I have

So I really don't want to hurt you no more 

That's why I wrote this letter 

To ask for forgiveness 


I'm done,  I had to leave

If I can't have you in this life it's best I leave.

I'm a coward I'd rather watch over you from above

Than hurt you repeatedly or watch you with someone else.


I'll never be the man I wish I'd be.

  • Comment from author about the poem: This is a 2012 Piece. I'm actually appalled at how it makes sense to what we face today. I relate heavily even 9 years later .

    Sometimes leaving is the right thing at that particular time. People always move on, life dictates this. Nine years later, it probably makes sense now.
