I ran to you, knowing you would run back.
I cared for you, knowing you would care back.
I loved you, knowing you would love me back.
I let you go, knowing you would never forget me.
I begged for your return, hoping It wasn’t too late.
You ran to me, knowing I may not stay.
I’m such a fool.
I believed this would work.
You’re pleading with me,
that this time will be different.
Crying, desperately asking for another chance.
I changed everything for you.
You only changed me.
That was never going to be enough.
I realized I hurt you too late.
The statements wandered internally.
They had merit, they were right.
They developed into thoughts left unsaid
but murmurs on the edge of my tongue.
Once spewed forth, brought eternal regret.
I thought you already knew what I said as truth.
Only to find that you blindly trusted my
feelings were exactly as yours.
She ran to him.
He saw her coming.
She opened her arms to him.
He stood there.
She laughed at his humor.
He smiled sometimes.
She awoke to an empty house.
He lost his way.
She started making friends.
He started drinking.
She found new hobbies.
He forgot he had hobbies.
She met someone else.
He met his bottom.
She started a new life.
He lost his.
Of all the things I didn’t expect today.
A kind word from a stranger.
Love from a soulmate.
A personal story from a friend.
I get up everyday expecting nothing other
The smallest things transform that
view into heaven.
The smallest things matter
The way your lips respond when I catch your eye
How your eyes smile
The way you are with me
The way we are us
If us makes me feel like this
then I never want to be me again
The last time we quarreled
We made up.
Let’s quarrel again.
The equality part is us.
Remove us from the equation,
and there is nothing left.
