A Long Time Ago

April 26, 2016 - Crestfallen, Heart matters, Out of Love
A Long Time Ago

As he slouched over the counter
His demeanor betrayed him
For he just looked as I did
When he snatched her from me
A long time ago.

A long time ago it seems
Only a few days gone
Six months and a week
To be precise
Still, a long time ago

I died then
When she ditched me
After he tantalized her
With flashy digital attention
Dulling my analogue attention
Of pure old fashioned down to earth adoration

A long time ago it seems
Only a few weeks gone
Six months and a week
To be precise
A long time ago

But I rose again
With scars on my wounded heart
Dry eyes that could cry no more
Dusted myself and got up again
Washed my face and learnt to smile
And try to live and love again

I joined him at the counter
His tears, his heartache told it all
He was me all over again
Perfectly reflecting my wounded soul
For she had been snatched again
From his calculating digital fingers
A few days ago
