It was nearly a year ago,
And I can still feel the scars,
The ruins of who I loved.
You are standing idly
On the path I used to take.
I’ve turned away,
I can finally look back now.
And now the things you say
Mean just as much to me
As any given person’s words would.
There’s nothing left to question.
I don’t lay awake
Wondering where your heart is tonight.
I don’t worry
About your lack of love for me.
As compatible as we seem to be,
I change myself in light of your presence
For no reason.
You still bring out the best in me,
How precious you are now.
What a monster you were back then.
Everything I ignored
Was still beautiful to me.
I wouldn’t say I was completely wrong,
But I surely was half-blind,
And now I wish you could really be
Everything I thought you were when
I had no chance to break your heart.
Why aren’t you blurry?
Why am I not shaking?
I thought I loved you,
Or is teenage love
Not worth mentioning after all?
