Maybe Another Year... by myoriginalsin

Homepage Feature 02/01/10

Winner in the Live, Love, Dream It’s All About Love challenge

Winner in the Your Best Evocative Work challenge :)

Almost a year today
I thought I was over it
Over you
Gone from my every waking thought
To a not so distant memory
And a thought every now and then

But time isn’t always so forgiving
One unplanned
One slip
Down memory lane
I’m right back there again
Just like that…
Hopeless girl
Lonely girl
Can’t let go girl
Knowing I can’t have you
You said “not ever again”
Wanting you so much I ache
I ache
For I can’t show a soul
That I am here again
In this fantasy world
Of me and you
But not you and me
Of you
My every waking thought
Never a distant memory

How did I go a year?
With just a thought now and then…
I concede…

They say time heals
But will time find
The pieces that are missing?

So I start again,
With every waking thought…
And look towards
The thoughts of every now and then
….the distant memories
And maybe another year…
