One Year Since

Is it worse the hurt of feeling neglected,

Or the pain of being twice rejected?

The crippling blow when you’re not selected

As if your very heart’s infected.

A bittersweet memory invasion

Interrupts my day-to-day equation,

One year since can drag you down low,

A bombardment of brain bullets show

A world you’ve lost but sorely crave.

Would move on; but you’re not that brave.

In comparison to your current life

Emotional contrasts bring only strife

And misery and longing and stinging tears,

An inner screaming that nobody hears

For a love that’s past but evermore strong,

And a wish that this won’t last too long.
