One More Step
By Rachel Bryan
I left you alone by the school
and I never felt more like a fool
I felt no surprise,
for the turmoil I was feeling.
I left that city,
racked with self-pity,
with a faint hope in my heart.
All I wanted was a new start,
but I should have looked much farther.
A year and a half in the mirror,
and your eyes I only see clearer.
With blue eyes like a storm,
all I felt was lukewarm,
knowing I could never see them again.
I try to think of another,
with feelings we’d share with each other.
And with wise time I learn from the past
and see old love’s faults at last.
I am one step closer to “better”.
