And just for thought...
The way you looked once at me stays in my memory
and what that look once meant still warms.
You weren't the first to break past my sarcasm
or to fall in love with my laugh.
You won't be the last to grace my heart.
You used to have this smile that drove me crazy.
At times, you captivated me and maybe that was what made us last
but it couldn't keep us much longer than that.
You can still get a smile out of me but many can now.
Many more will but I'll give you that.
The part of me that fell in love with you will always still be in love with you,
just like the others that managed to swoon me so.
I'll hold onto the way your mouth used to tip just for me but that's all.
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.
