Once upon a time,
We were soul mates.

We played in the trees,
And would swing together.

I loved you.
And the feeling was mutual.

But that was before --
Before you left me.

You never did say good-bye;
Did you know that?

I never forgot you,
Though the other kids did.

Now I wonder,
Did you ever think about me?

I am in eight grade,
And our paths cross again.

I see your haunting eyes.

Your never seem to
See mine though.

I think of where we might be,
If you hadn't have left me.

But always,
I am pulled back to reality.

Where dreams die and
Pain grows.

For every time I see you,
I wonder ...

Once upon a time,
We were soul mates.

We are nothing.

This is my own experience.
There was a boy at my elementary and that was the biggest reason I went to school without struggle.
I don't talk to him, but I hope he reads this.
I wrote this in the middle of the night, it was sorta wierd.
Anyway, I hope you like it.

I think this is a cool piece but I don't really get it. It's way too .... what's the word ... way too wordy.
