Nothing is impossible, just highly improbable


For a little bit
I cared
about his smile
about his hair

For a second
I was aware
of his body
and his hands

For a moment
I was notified
at every word
and every pause

But it passed
as you passed me
as I held back
it was gone

its later now
and now you notice
but i have passed
like a memory

I have passed
you are late
you noticed too late
and i didn't wait

first of all - best one of yours i have read yet! this was amazing, but now i have to be nit-picky since it was good ;) i feel like memory could be replaced by a better word, because althought i know what you mean...the memory didnt pass. time did, but thats not right either. and the last line would sound better, atleast to me, if it was "did not wait", and the above would sound better as "you're late" yeat again, atleast to me. because right underneath is another you. but anyways i reeally like this. you really packed in the meaning and storyint o so little words. amaazing!
