'If I had a dime for every possibility I presented, my wealth would render this loss no less severe...' - 'Simple Together, Alanis Morrisette
Memories no longer bring tears,
I've moved on, and so have you...
Too long, it seemed, I'd been clinging onto dreams,
And reality came bursting through again
So it's not that easy to forget those times
Echoes of memories resurface
Making an intake of breath a chore
However, I'm no longer paralyzed...
I'm no longer a 'couple'
We're no longer 'together'
We're off in seperate directions,
As I knew we would be eventually
I just didn't expect it then
Moving on, that's what it's come down to-
Discarding a memory here, forgetting an echo there,
Until finally, I am rid of this and start again.
