Have you seen the moon tonight?
That was a full moon night too.
That night when we fell apart,
And, my first thought was of our start.
The air was pregnant with endless possibilities.
You had looked into my eyes,
And, asked if it was a good idea.
I’d said No without asking what you meant.
But in that instant my soul recognised you
From another lifetime and another space,
And I fell for you irrevocably, forever.
So I floated in your love, and settled down in it
Only to be rudely awakened to a stare of silence,
To realise that I was just a fleeting fancy for you.
I had wanted to grow old with you.
I was foolish to think you cared.
You’re the kind who makes it his business
To capture what you cannot keep,
To conquer hearts, break them and move on.
I mourned you then, but I thank you now
For teaching me lessons that I needed to learn.
You’re a mistake that I’d rather not recycle.
Today, I’ve washed my spirits clean.
Apparently I am old enough to know better.
Still young enough to not care when I’m told to,
And, most importantly experienced enough
To know that I will continue to do
What I feel is right, when and where it matters.
