What if

Sometimes I still think about you

How could I not?

You were my whole world for a piece of time

“You” could be a variety of people

There’s the “you” I had for 13 years

There’s the “you” I had for a day

There’s the “you” I almost had

There’s the “you” I never had

And there’s the “you” that slipped away, leaving nail marks in my palm from how tightly I tried to hold on

I wonder what would have happened if we had met?

Would you have chosen me?

Would I had still wanted you to?

The “what if” of us will always be unfinished because of how it ended

So fantasy is easy to fall into

I imagine we would have been hot as fire

The mere presence of you setting me aflame

But reality quickly extinguishes that thought

Because I know better now

Still, I would have wanted to hold you, even just once

Even after knowing how everything turns out

I miss “you”

But only sometimes

I am an avid fan of creating narratives in my head about random experiences and quotes for future books I will probably not write. I harbor a 15 year old girl in my psyche and like to solve world issues when I'm half asleep. View all posts by samlobos
