It was a car ride I wish I never took.
A word I wish I could have said.
It was the 107.5 station that spoke on this lonely night.
At afar I could hear the plane for her departure.
But up close I can feel my ego’s rupture.
My sluggish flatlining heart yearned for a hug.
To feel the beat of a soul he onced loved.
I still wonder how a foreign rhythm can be
ingrained so deep in one's heart.
Your unmovable self was all I needed that
night, a reward of happiness at your sight.
I wish I could have said bye.
Your silent retreat back to an island I hardly felt
Was devastating and tremendous to my mental health,
I'm sorry, instead of enjoying your final gentle
gesture, I allowed it to turn sour.
Depriving it of its rightful glory.
