How To Lose (OctPoWriMo2014)-Day 18

We tend to think we know someone
And then they go and surprise us
But I'm also not stupid
And I know about loss
How to lose
When it's already gone
When it's slipping away
So don't tell me I'm imagining things
You say you want it back to the way we were
But we both know it's not possible
You did too much
I did too little
There's not enough to hold on to
But you don't want to let go
And last night I found someone
Because for the past few months you have too
And now you're sorry
But I know about loss
How to lose
When it's already gone
When it's slipping away
And you're already through my fingers...

I gained inspiration from page 127 of my first novel, A Tragic Heart. On this page my main character is going back to the life she thought she wanted only to realize that it's already lost and there's not much else she and her partner can do to salvage it. Sometimes it isn't worth it. Instead of choosing select words I found inspiration from the entire page. Here's a picture of the page:
