I planned to forget,
But when you truly love someone,
It never leaves you.
I hoped that the rains would wash me into a river,
So I will learn to flow like water,
Until I’ll reach a shore
Where memories cannot travel.
It has been months since it happened,
We fought for our hearts,
But the distance swallowed us whole,
And spit us out onto different paths.
