And just for thought...
I remember everything you said
even though the words have long faded away.
The tone of your voice still penetrates my dreams.
The electricity that was once your eyes still shocks me
regardless that they died from my life much too long ago.
We fell apart at the seams when the world came in.
Our love could have once moved mountains
but reality was too strong an adversary for us to handle.
If we could have stayed in our corner, we might have made it.
If we could have remained on that mound with the crashing lightning,
we could have held on forever.
We will always be there with our arms wrapped tightly around each other.
You touched a part of me that I never knew or will know again.
When we left, we took a part of each other with us.
I hope you can still remember the smiles you gave me
even though it has been years since you looked my way.
I hope the laughter we shared still echoes through your ears.
The music came on and we met on the dance floor,
clutching to the love we knew would end
because always had other plans for us.
The unsure boy standing in front of my fireplace
next to the frightened girl in the blue gown,
held her arm as they walked on.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
