She said she wanted to help me,
but the only thing I could think of
was to find a time and place
to shut out the people in our lives
and sort through our details.
We started writing our story
many years ago
but we left it unfinished.
She said to just leave things be
and move forward being friends.
But this doesn't help me.
It still leaves me tormented,
looking for answers
that could close all the chapters.
This could've been a great story
if we had known what we were feeling
and had the guts to keep going.
But real life has pushed us to a point
where happily ever after
is just wishful thinking.
Maybe now she can help me
finish writing our story of
going from what was
to what is.
