The Past

the past
that lingers on your mind
hanging on the end of every thought
the bitter taste on your tongue
and though you’ve moved on
that night replays over and over in your mind
leaving you wishing that you had a stop button
and now here you are
drowning in a new love so deep
something you’ve never felt before
he’s showing you what it really is
taking it slow
cherish it
one step at a time
you’ve got his respect, girl
but how can you live in this love
when you’ve got the past on your mind
when the regret won’t leave you alone
it’s got you up all night
wishing you could do it again
but wishing you could just forget it
and you’re feeling like you owe it to him
he’s giving all this love to you
but there’s still the broken parts
the parts he may never be able to patch back up
the pieces from your jigsaw puzzle past
should you tell him
and let him know what’s hurting
or is it too soon
to tell such a truth

such a heavily weighted object is truth
it could easily break something as fragile
and tender
as this new budding love

the past is unimportant
as of this moment in your relationship
perhaps one day you will tell him
as he deserves to know about you
but when you tell him
you will be at a certain point in your relationship
you may choose when that is
you will be to the point where something such as this
is merely a stepping stone
toward a better, stronger, more caring and loving relationship
it will show him that you trust him enough
in life
and in love
to tell him something with such great weight
your past
and he
he will love you all the more
to make up for that which he did not do
but wishes to make right
to make you feel like the queen you are to him

do not dwell on the past, as it is unimportant.
look toward the future
and imagine this beautiful love that you two will soon share.

i love you baygirrl xoxo
