I remember…

I remember the first day we met, you followed me for 6 hours, I ignored you

I remember you begging for my number

I remember enjoying the feeling

I remember our first date, you couldn’t stop smiling

I remember the first time you held my hand and we walked down the pier

I remember feeling careless and carefree, it didn’t matter who saw us, all that mattered was you

I remember the hours on the phone, the lack of sleep

I remember sneaking out of the house, stolen moments sitting in the car outside

I remember the presents, so many presents

You were so solemn when you took my hands in yours and looked at me and told me that you loved me

Im sorry I laughed but I was too nervous to do anything else

I remember the moment I fell in love with you

I remember crying when I told you that I loved you

I remember your smile

I remember the day we almost got caught, you held me close as I panicked

I remember the day your dad called mine, I sat there on the phone with you feeling sick. My stomach was turning inside out.

I remember spending hours talking to you about our life together and how wonderful it was going to be.

I remember the day I found out you spent the night with her

It felt like someone had punched me in the guts and pulled my heart out of my chest

I remember you denying anything happened

I remember the months apart and the fighting

I remember them telling me I was stupid to trust you again

I remember you smiling at me telling me that you loved me

I remember the final plans to be married

I remember looking at you, and feeling as if you were a stranger

I remember saying goodbye to you

I remember being your friend

I remember the hours on the phone and the I love you at the end of the call

We just friends right?

I remember the day before you wedding, we cried for hours.

Why were you crying?

I remember you and her calling me when you were married

I remember the years in between when we were not in touch

Sometimes I’d wonder how you were, most of the time I didn’t even remember you

I remember your divorce

I remember feeling guilty though I had nothing to do with it

I remember the calls

I remember hating you

I remember missing you

You were my best friend. No one knew me like you did even after all that time

I remember the accident

I remember thinking I could never live without you

I remember wanting to forget the past and start again

Why didn’t that work out?

I remember slowly slipping away from you, the distance ever increasing

I remember falling in love with someone else

I remember you supporting me

I remember the days and months that went by without speaking to you

I remember always being able to pick up where we left off

I remember telling you Im ready to settle down, I think

You insist you want another chance. You tell me that my destiny is entwined with yours. You tell me no one else can love me like you do. I know this is true. I’ve always known. The problem is, I do not love you in the same way. The thing is, if destiny wanted us to be together, it would have happened a long time ago. Im sorry.

I will always remember. You will always remember. The one thing that will always be ours.

    Geez, can someone take the knife out of my heart already? Thanx.

    Seriously AMAZING piece…so sad and bittersweet.

  3. MJ- Welcome and thanks.

    Azra- I don’t think the pain the memories bring ever dissapears even after we move on. It’s just that way with some experiences. In a way for me, it’s a reminder of what was and I don’t ever want to forget šŸ™‚

    Sucker for punishment.lol
