The One

I always thought it was fine
(in the back of my mind)
that you were unattainable...

I knew you would be the one that got away.


I always thought it was fair
(even though you didn't care)
that you were hypothetical...

I knew you would be the one that got away.

I always thought it was kind
(was I blind?)
that you ever called at all...

I knew you would be the one that got away.

I always thought it was heartbreakingly sad
(yes, even when I was mad)
that you didn't see what I was worth…

I knew you would be the one that got away.

I always thought it was thrilling
(that you were even willing!)
to start this relationship again….

I thought you would be the one that got away.

I always knew you were the heartbreaker
(misery maker)
that would devastate me…

I thought you would be the one that got away.


I always knew that you cared for me
(even though you never shared with me)
in ways you couldn’t show…

I thought you would be the one that got away.

I always knew that I would love you
(but that is nothing new)
for the rest of my days..

I thought you would be the one that got away.


I always knew that it would end
(why did it ever begin?)
by simply slipping beyond…

I thought you would be the one that got away

But I never thought
(and I never knew)
that I would be the one to leave, that it wouldn’t be you

That I would be the one….
that got away.

Hey widows!

this cuts straight to the bone
and that's gotta hurt
but you know it'll hurt even worse to not leave
and at least you're getting some good creative mileage out of it

and don't it feel good ti really have your life be your own?

glad you are back and apparently blogging

I've got a little catching up to do

PS. i wonder how many peices people have composed are ound here called The One.

Here's a link to mine if you missed it "The One"

I just reread that and connected back to how I felt when I wrote it. That was coming from a very manic, nearly insane point of view. But happy insane.
