the other day, i saw a girl that reminded me of you
it was about 2 weeks ago. i was out shopping with my brother and my mom. we were at the 99 only store, going up and down the aisles. it was like many other times, and otherwise uneventful :
but then there she was. as soon as i saw her, i felt like i did when we first met. her hair was about the same as yours - slightly curly. it was lighter than yours, tho. but her demeanor was the same. her facial expression was the same, and her body was the same type as yours. she did not look exactly like you, but close enough
of course, i am talking about when we first met. before everything had a chance to go bad. but when was it really ever good? it was good for you, in that i always gave you a lot of attention. but as far as it being mutual, it didn't get that far. but with this girl...it stirred up those old emotions. the ones that made me want to believe it could go better at some point.
she was very young. but i never was a good judge of age. and she didn't really look my way at all. again, neither did you until much later.
it made me wonder how things could have been different. what if there was another chance? no, not with this girl - that would be weird. but overall. what if there was a way that you and i could be together again? how would that go? would it be more of a mutual relationship?
it seems like so long ago that we first met at that donut shop in south philly. it was like a lifetime ago. i wanted everything so much. i couldn't remember another time i wanted something so badly.
so now i have to live knowing that this girl is out there somewhere. or is she? maybe it was a spectre, sent to remind me of how my life is now. i don't think i've gone a day without thinking of you at some point. we were together for almost 10 years, and altho it went bad at the end, we had a lot of good times. you were truly the love of my life
