Thoughts & Poetry

New (separate) Lives

My third entry for this month’s Forgotten Poetries project. This was written last year, November 16th. 
I’m running out of reasons
To think and talk about you
I might just fall to pieces
Knowing now you’re gone for good
You’re just about every Beatles song that I love
Now you lie in the arms of someone else
I guess I was hoping we’d still end up in the end
But now you’re lost
You’ve disappeared into someone else’s life
I kept checking my rearview mirror
Almost called out loud a random stranger
Imagine how my heart leaped thinking he was you
I guess I keep forgetting, you’re no longer mine
You don’t love me like you used to do
All the countless fights we’ve ever had
All the times I wished and said we’re through
I’d take them all back, I’d trade this new life I have found
Just to be with you
