Hot tears stream down my face
All I can see is your back as you walk away
Walk away without a second glance
The ring falls out of my hand
*Three Months Ago*
I nervously scratch at my arm
A bad habit I reverted to when I was especially stressed
"The princess cut diamond in a plantium band? Are you sure, Sir?"
"Yes" I said
*Six Months Ago*
You peppered kisses all over my face
"I can't believe you got the house!"
I held you tight
And kissed the top of your head
"It's our forever house. I had to splurge"
*Nine Months Ago*
You squeezed my hand
Before letting go and running into the waves
I laughed as you got soaked
And ran back to me shivering
Even though it was your fault, I took off my coat so you could keep warm
And you smiled up and me adoringly
*A year ago*
"I love you" you blurted suddenly
I looked up from the pancake I was currenly burning
Shock clearly evidant on my face
"You don't have to say it back-" You tried to cover
"I love you too"
*A year and a half ago*
"You know, I really like hanging out with you" I said
"I like hanging out with you too"
"Sooo..." I dragged out the word
You giggled again
"Sooo..." You teased me
"Do you want to maybe be my girlfriend?" I asked
You pressed your lips to mine
And I felt them form the word "yes"
*Two years ago, give or take*
I saw you standing alone by a bench
And gathering up all my courage, I walked over to you
You beamed as you told me your name
And we shook hands, both smiling
"Nice to meet you" I said
