The One

I hope years from now,
When you are sitting somewhere, sad and alone,
A thought crosses your mind and you realize,
I was the one,
The one you should have taken a chance on,
I hope years from now,
You admit to yourself that you chose fear over love,
Immaturity and selfishness were your main priorities,
And not my feelings,
I was the one,
I hope years from now,
When you comb through the chapters of your life,
You are hit with feelings of such deep loss,
It catches in your throat,
Like bile rising,
I was the one,
I hope years from now,
When you decide you will reach out to me,
And wallow in your regret,
Maybe I will be kind and choose empathy,
This eats away at you more,
The fact that I have moved on,
And we have become strangers again,
No longer having access to my deepest thoughts and feelings,
I was your one…
