A lot can change in a year,
Cliche but still a saying with its merits.
One year ago today I was a mess,
On the cusp of a choice with life-changing proportions.
Now I sit here again a mess,
Dealing with the repercussions of said choice.
I thought moving on from you would be simple,
Fancy-free and about to achieve my dreams.
Oh, oh how wrong I was!
You have tethered yourself to my heart,
Bound for eternity, destined to linger.
Your familiarity and acceptance cause a series of what if scenarios.
You were my world and I naively disregarded this.
But alas, you turned to pastures new,
And have disproved my high regarding assumptions of myself.
You have moved on,
While I forever stay fixed.
