Moving On

August 5, 2008
By Kristina Guzman, Bronx, NY

It should come as no surprise
I never said forever
And you made no promises

It was short lived, so I guess I'm

But then again
Isn't that was girls do?

We were both nervous, despite the
we had in sharing personal information
But I went in with hopes that I finally got it right
And you went in with caution, so as not to repeat past outcomes
It was a risk for both of us

Those days are gone;
feeling giddy
The random public smiles at the thought of you
Did you ever get those?

This situation wasn't so black and white
I attempt to accept the terms.
And I don't bother speaking to you
That would be pointless, since I know what your response will be

And as far as your lack of something to say
I hear you loud and clear
