I thought about deleting your name from my phone, but seeing it still makes me smile. I guess it’s my way of holding onto the memories for just a little while.
I still think you’re special, and very sweet, despite no follow through. You said you wanted to see me again, I worried it wasn’t true.
Maybe a self-fulfilling prophecy, It seems I scared you away. I’m really not too concerned anymore, I’m a stronger woman today.
The distance, and lack of touch, was torture to my heart. I guess 5 1/2 hours- was just too far apart.
We found love in the mountains. Pure bliss, I’d never known. But a close connection is hard to maintain, from the other end of the phone.
I told you I would call- when the divorce was over and done. As weeks turned into months, I got tired of being alone.
Another filled the void, not knowing where we stood. With him I shared some special love, that felt so goddamn good!
My needs unmet- so overdue, were screaming to be heard. Now I am all alone again. Just me and my written word.
