Shadow of an Almost

Shadow of an Almost

A Poem by AJadeLion

You never want to believe that they've moved on. So far into denial you don't even realize you're in love.

We started like a fairy tale
Totally enamored with one another 
Pieces to make each other whole
The best kind of friend to have
The kind you always think will
Last forever

We grew we grew
And I couldn't stop thinking
of her
Her everything
Her perfection 
The best friend I'd ever had
And how good she made me feel
when we were younger

So I couldn't let go
I clung and I tried to keep that flame
Lied and pretended 
that it was the same
the same glory
same understanding
same connection
As what we had once

But it wasn't the same
It was pining
Not friendship
Unrequited love
Heartfelt longing 
for the girl who grew up
And left me behind

Now I'm holding on
To the shadow of an almost
fairy tale
To the memory of the promise 
of a forever

But in the right light
It feels like the real thing
