I Lost Myself When I Lost You

For now, I've made it

Here I am at the finish line Thinking back to when we dreamed of this

Alas, we split in summertime. And your pure love, I did dismiss.

Yet now your lips are what I long to kiss.

Forgive my poor choice of words. As I write this, my heart's cut into thirds.

Longing to return to our once felt bliss.

You provided me with everything. But most of all, the will to succeed.

Which I agreed to achieve indeed. Yet so sadly, our love was left to retro-cede.

Kicking myself and only me for what's to be.

And from the start you knew, that you were for me.

I cried and contemplated life without you Shooting myself in the foot, or setting myself free.

Boiling up to my feelings hitherto. The only worthwhile thing I threw away was you.

So now memories of you only evoke regret That I offset at the bar trying to forget

What I saw as happiness in your now fading silhouette.
