Even though years have passed by, at that moment
with her, memories and feelings came rushing to him,
crushing him to bits and pieces.
She has moved on with a full life of her own,
yet now, he realized, after all, he’s alone
not because he let go, but because he still hasn’t.
It was one thing to know his feelings haven’t faded,
but it was entirely another, to face the future with
the certainity that they never would.
