And just for thought...
You passed through my life like a thunderstorm on a warm summer night,
clear skies to hazy clouds.
You told me I preferred to be alone.
I didn't know what you meant.
Those many nights we spent together in the twilight of our romance,
you would whisper to me.
Sometimes I heard you but most of the time I was lost in my own vanity.
You grabbed your keys that morning with a look I had never seen before.
Maybe I hadn't been looking.
You tried to tell me but as always I continued on with my own crusades.
The fingers that crossed my cheek felt foreign,
almost as if we had never known each other at all.
You knew I wanted to tell you to stay just as much as I was relieved you were gone.
Like a storm, you raged through my life,
leaving an aftermath that only slightly phased me.
For the record, after that door closed I finally understood what you meant.
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.
