Reminded Me of You


I woke up this morning with this song in my head.
They don’t even play it on the radio here?
Anyway, it reminded me of you.  Like
everything does.
Somehow I’m supposed to move on.
How does that happen?  When?
The days are moving on, but I still feel the same.
It could have worked.  Or maybe not.
I can’t do it on my own.
How do people open their heart to someone and then
just let them go?
That’s the part I’m having a hard time with.
I mean I know the answer –
It  ain’t working.  Tired of trying.  It’s not good.
I feel like you did everything you could to make us not work.
And I did everything I could to make us work.
That’s the problem.
I can’t fix that.
We don’t talk anymore.
And I can’t forget you –
So now what?
