Mountain Time Memories

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.
