Moving On

I have decided to let go 

I never realised I had a checklist 

Of all the wrongs you had committed  


I thought I could look past your imperfections 

But with more and more boxes checked,

The list just gets longer and longer 

That one page was not enough

And I cannot hold on any more 

Till it fills up a whole book 

I am not waiting to build a library 

Perhaps my love was not enough 

To cover your flaws


It was like an artist drawing a piece of art 

She has high expectations 

Every paper she draws on

She was not satisfied 

And threw them all into the bin 

The bin was full 

Some ended up on the floor 

It was time to clear it out 


With every hardwork she puts into the drawings,

And the bin slowly gets filled, 

A little hope was gone with that piece of paper 


I refuse to be a slave to love 

The time has faded

The opportunities were lost 

The love was gone 

And I am moving on
