Sweet, like candy.
You call out to me.
Would it be a crime if I stole?
I once waited for an apology
But now I don’t need your sorry.
I can’t even return to the naive me
To pretend to believe your sob story.
Why don’t you save your acting,
For someone who still worries?
Let’s steal moments,
In a day full of errands.
Or whisper secrets,
In a room full of people.
I promise I won’t run,
As long as you can find.
Did we owe a debt,
And agreed to return?
Did I say I’ll find you,
Or that you’ll find me?
And I’m sure we will come to find,
As we have always done
In this lifetime, once again.
I wish I could see you
And feel your skin.
We take a step forward,
Then two steps back
When all I ever once wanted,
Was for you to come back.
And I don’t feel anything anymore,
About this or about that.
But why is it that even after all this time,
I still can’t go back to that coffee shop
Where we once sat
Even after all this time?
We’re standing in the rain
Side by side,
Waiting for the train.
But why does the gap between you and I,
Feel so much larger than the gap
Between the train and the platform?
Sometimes I miss you so much.
I wish I had more time to hold you.
I wish I could have been there in your last moments,
Just like the first.
And someday you will finally see,
That everything happened
Because it needed to.
And all those times you would break
Have never been futile,
For one day you will look back,
But this time, with a smile.
I’ve never been good at remembering the past.
Why would I remember the things that didn’t last?
But for all that I have lost,
I somehow have also gained.
The lessons that I have learnt,
Were all learnt through pain.
