The Prodigal Lover

I thought that this was easy

Thought I’d find somebody else

I did the math,

Now, time has passed

And I’m still by myself

You truly understood me

Made me smile and laugh at will

You listened well

And I could tell

That we were meant to be

It’s like you were a part of me

The way you read my mind

We saw each other

Eye to eye

Yet, somehow I was blind

You wanted more than I could give

Refused to compromise

Not seeing you for what you were

Major lack of foresight

Commitment was too daunting

Long distance?? Never that!

I brushed you off

You got fed up

I didn’t even try

I took it all for granted

I, We, This, Us, You

I thought love was commoditized

But sadly this ain’t true

So thus we parted ways

I was quite numb, as usual

Convinced myself

Not to look back

The struggle continued

Time passed us gradually

Days, weeks, months, turned into years

And here I am

Tail between legs

Reading old messages

I’ve tried my luck since then

Testing the waters

Here and there

But no one has come half as close

Nobody can compare.

I thought that this was easy

Thought I’d find somebody else

I did the math,

But time has passed

And I’m still by myself….
