Moving On

sometimes, things change,
but not for the
better.
although things were once
good, they can't
always stay that
way.

people change, as do
their feelings.
alliances shift,
a new match is made.

but it's hard to let go.
even when you
really aren't
holding onto
anything.
it's hard to know
they're not the same
person they once
were.

and it's hard to realize
they won't laugh
and joke with you
anymore,
but with her.
the one who has
it all.
it just doesn't seem fair.

and of course, you
have to be a
good friend,
you have to be
supportive.
because really,
he was never
yours to begin with.



and you can't
complain, because
it was your decision
to make this happen.
you nudged them
in that
direction.

you can't let them
know that
every time you
see them together,
you die a little
inside.

but this has all
happened before.
doesn't it
always?
it doesn't seem
right-
that some people
get everything.

right now, it's
painful, but
as time goes by,
you will forget
about him,
about her,
about them.
it will all
melt together,
like a lake,
and simply
evaporate away.
