Easier said than done
Considering how far we’ve come.
You snuck up from behind
And swept me off my feet.
Now nightly in my mind I rewind
to when things between us weren’t so bleak.
When you would see my face and smile
While I did just the same.
The joy I felt when I heard your name
has turned into pain and regret.
And I bet, that weeks from now,
maybe even months, or years
I’ll remember your face
and be brought to tears.
If someone told me I could forget it all,
Without hesitation, I would heed their call.
Rather than crash into the looming wall
of misery and pain that plaques me
when thoughts of you enter my brain.
Your love left a stain darling
when you flew off like a starling.
