“A Letter To What Was Once Mine” by Matilda Uchegbu
it’s nice to hear from you again,
it’s been years, I fell into hate and felt drained, but now it’s all a facade because I can say and I do mean it
It’s nice to hear from you again.
Things changed like the weather, the time, trends and cloths changed but one thing remained the same,
how I feel about you, it’s so nice to hear from you again.
You sound happy, I don’t know how I feel about it, not sure if I’m sad or if I should be,
I almost cried when I heard the sound of your voice
still so smooth and encouraging as ever, not sure
why I feel these emotions,
I thought I hated you, so why is it so nice to hear from you again?
I know it’s been a while but
we are talking like there was never a space
or time never flew by, everyday I await a text
because I know a call would be asking for much, I
never thought it’d be so nice to hear from you again.
Like I said things changed, I’m happy about it,
atleast that’s what I’d like to believe,
you seem so happy and I should be contented right?
But it kind of hurts even though it’s not supposed to,
that I know you stay up late at night ‘cus of her while
I do same ‘cus of you,
I don’t know if it was right to hear from you again.
But I know your heart still beats closely to mine
like it used to,
because I was never so sure about anyone like
I was you,
it’d be a shame if I let you leave
without saying goodbye to me, I guess what I’m saying is it’d be nice to see you again.
But I hope this ‘goodbye’ is different,
it doesn’t sneak up on me and then lasts forever or
maybe another 4 or 5years down and then
I’d get that ‘hey fishbrain’ text, lol, you’d think it’d be
‘bighead’ from you , you’d also think
it wouldn’t be nice to hear from you still,
But it’ll be nice to hear from you, still, it would.
Always and Forever.”
