A person I once knew.
Countless moments of joy and pure hearted love.
Memories that would last a lifetime.
Remember the promises and the stories? All the conversations and hopes we had?
But now, they’re all washed away, aren’t they?
I never thought that I would be the kind of person to cry, let alone feel all these emotions. But I guess what bonded us was how similar we were. What created that bond was something that perhaps neither of us can ever explain.
I never wanted a last time to be there for us. Was it actually that tough? You know you cared, maybe just not enough. Maybe, I slipped away when you came closer.
You’d always tease me for falling for perfect romantic poetry. Ever wondered who the writer of those poems was?
Maybe we didn’t ponder enough. Maybe we never dreamed enough. That was exactly where we faltered. Moving on is perhaps the toughest thing and it doesn’t get any easier with time.
There were times when I cried, cried for you. Cried for us. You were there for me at a time when probably no one was. I miss having you around, you know?
Now, I only wish that you’d talk to me, even if it was for the very last time.
A person now lost without you.
