I lived with the “What if’s”
of what we could’ve been for a long time.
I lived with the “Why’s” the countless times
I counted stars that embraced us under the same sky.
I lived with your pain, and your anger,
hoping you will notice that I cared;
until the day came when I finally realized
that just because we shared the same air and the same universe,
did not mean that we belonged together.
