The one that got away. I’ve met a million other people
After you I had another
And also one after the other
I thought it was going to feel the same
I was wrong
And that was when I knew that for me,
Love was you.
It felt extremely different from the others
I had not realized this until another came
But still couldn’t make me feel the same
You made me feel like I was worth a million bucks,
and even more.
You made me believe that love,
was more than just a word
was more than just feelings
You gave love a meaning for me.
You made me feel PRICELESS.
I found out a part of me I didn’t know about
It was the first time I placed someone else before myself
I let go of my pride for you without any hesitation
I became the person I didn’t know I was
I became weak when it came to anything about you
With you I got confused who I loved more
Whether it was you or myself
I’m yet to figure out.
I began to lose myself
Because it was always about you
Nothing else but you
Even you before myself
I got scolded at for being so into you
Everyone told me that this love story would end someday
I told them they were wrong
I argued you were different
and definitely not like the others
Because I had nothing but hope in you
All my trust was in you
I never for once imagined you leaving
Or even if I did it was a dream
But unfortunately you proved everyone right
And proved me wrong
You ended up leaving
It was the first time I had sleepless nights
Thinking where I had gone wrong
I blamed myself even if I didn’t leave
You left but I still justified why you left
I became a fool for you
I always am when it comes to you
You made me believe the saying that
Love is the closest to death
I had to learn the hard way
And that’s why I’ll always call you
The one that got away.
Maybe you were meant to come into my life but you weren’t meant to stay.
I still wish you were meant to stay
But it will be fine I know
I still have puzzles in my head
Trying to figure out
Why exactly you got away.
