The One that Got Away

by Tony   Apr 17, 2017


We met eachother when we were kids but even then I knew, sitting on the swingset that my heart belonged to you. Didn't know how to tell you but please believe I tried, I can still see the ink I penned though long since it has dried. A lifetime of stolen glances, shared secrets, and silent walks, you'd think they'd fill me with courage but always around the truth I talked. A million missed chances later when I finally took my shot, it wasn't worth risking our friendship so you said you'd rather not. The irony is we drifted apart and didnt talk for years. So much wasted time behind us and countless pointless tears. So much time has passed between us but it feels as though nothings changed. I trust you with all my secrets and still I think you feel the same. You read all the poems I wrote once, and asked me "whats her name?" Well its 18 years later and the one I write for hasn't changed. I wish you only happiness and have but one thing left to say, I will always be there for you... The One that Got Away
