The Past, Blocking Your View (Poem #111)

I guess there will always be a girl

you never lose feelings for

no matter how long

and no matter how wrong

As a new girl sits in front of you

you think about your past love

think about what you could’ve done

and wonder where she has gone

Never intending to hurt the one in front

in the back of your mind

a voice says, “leave the past behind”

but another would echo and say

“she’s too one of a kind, don’t”

You wonder where to listen

and between the doubts

you forgot that she still needs to be forgotten

in the end you lost the one ahead

and hurt her more than you ever intended
