I seriously thought it was over.

Seriously,

I thought it was over;

that we were finished.

You and I,

pretty sure we were discarded.

You never thought to tell me,

in the moment,

just how much I meant to you;

so why now?

Why,

when a few years have

already gone by?

A few years.

Years;

not even months;

Years.

I've moved on.

I've learned how to

get through my days

without you.

So,

why now?

Why must you send a notification,

now?

Here you are

talking about how you miss us,

about how you still remember

our days spent together,

as if you never broke me

into a thousand pieces;

as if you never shattered my heart

all over the floor.

Seriously,

weren't we over?

Weren't you and I,

finished?

I want to move on...

why can't you?

    I think we all ask these questions when someone who left us years ago attempts to come back into our life. I can relate to this because I've been there.
