On Old Exes, New Hopes, and Moving On

Recommended Posts

I still look for her laughing in the crowds

But I can no longer find her

The way I used to

She's the first laugh I look for,

After all this time.

 

But

He walked in

And she was no longer my first laugh

He was my jaw dropping

My hand hurriedly extending-

Reaching not for his ticket, 

But his heart.

 

He reached for me

And we danced the night away

Eyes opened wide

Memorizing every detail

Lest the world rips us away too soon

And we find ourselves blind.

 

She is no longer my first laugh-

He is my new hope

My ticket to moving on

God, his smile 

His root beer Dum-Dum eyes

That razor sharp jaw.

 

Please,

Dionysus, 

Aphrodite,

Apollo,

Director and playwright,

Please don't let these curtains close just yet-

Our story has just begun.

Not quite sure where I'm going, but I'm going somewhere, that's for sure.
