Halfway Mark (OctPoWriMo2014)-Day 15

Go ahead and take your space
Because here with me is not your place
Maybe I deserve better, but then again maybe I don't
Maybe you need to experience more, but maybe you won't

Here we are stuck in the middle with no one but us
If you leave now how do you expect me to ever trust?
But if it's space that you need, then go ahead
It's worse regretting than waking up in an empty bed

We made it exactly to the halfway mark of forever
Time ticking away just turned into never
And I'm sorry to say that you're all that I got
But I'm more sorry to say I hope it's everything you're hoping it's not

And I'm hoping to say "no" when you want to hear "yes"
That someday I'll want what I want now less
And you're aching for it more than ever
That you regret the unbreakable ties you severed

So I stand here alone at the halfway mark of forever
Time ticking away just turned into never...

    1. Thank you. It's always much harder to think about what could've been than actually knowing.

  3. I LOVE this. This is exactly where I'm at currently in my own life, trying to figure out where my path is going and who will be on it with me, if anyone. This reads like a song, so beautiful. Fantastic job!

    1. Thank you so much! It's funny that you say it reads like a song because that's exactly what I was thinking when I wrote it. I wanted to write it in a way that maybe I can make it into a song someday. I think we all get to this point in our lives and it's one of the hardest things we have to decide.
