Your body lay peacefully in your dreams,
You looked like perfection.
Soft supple skin adored with your scent,
The features I had become so familiar with,
Lay bare for me to gaze upon.
A smile rests on my face; contended.
Then I remember this is the last time,
The last time I can cling to you tightly.
The smiled faded and sadness filled my soul,
I thought I would never get over you.
But that was one year ago now,
And as cliche as it sounds,
A lot can happen in a year.
And although I will admit I’m not completely over you,
I’m getting there.
I’ve seen the flaws in who we were together.
Our pairing wasn’t perfect; nothing ever is,
But we just weren’t right together.
Or so I tell myself to save me from despair.
One year on and although you still have my heart,
I am regaining control.
And in one year on from now,
The thoughts I have will have dissipated.
And I will be over you.
