Perhaps my heart still aches,
Even ever so slightly;
Whenever I see your name, though it wasn’t you;
Whenever I listen to heartbreak songs, which lyrics are so eerily parallel to us;
Whenever I reminisce in our shared memories, it wasn’t a lot anyway.
Perhaps a part of me still long for you,
Even though it would never work;
Because we stopped existing in each other’s lives, what’s left is just swimming in our brains;
Because of our backgrounds, culture and society are such necessary nuisances;
Because it was lopsided, where I was falling way off balance without noticing where you were standing.
Perhaps I still would want to see you again,
Perhaps we would meet each other again,
Perhaps you would want to see me again,
Perhaps we could be friends again.
Perhaps I should sleep,
Perhaps I should just let go of you, even if, perhaps, that was the best thing that’s ever happened to me (thus far).
