Please tell me this means nothing
that it was a simple slip
that you picked the wrong name
you hit the wrong button
please tell me that message was
not meant to go to her
that I was to receive
your words
But this aching wish of mine
is delusional
and pathetic
you see, we parted ways
at the fork in the road
you kept walking and turned
as you wished, while I-
I stood there watching you-
watching as you became
further and further from my reach
I guess it is time for
me to lace up my shoes
and sigh, breathe deep
before that first step
don't look back
salt only from my tears
and life will go on living
why couldn't I start
this journey
sooner?
