Perhaps, an illusion
All we had, all we shared
now flashing memories.
Perhaps we moved too fast,
possibly changing the course of destiny
as we moved through our life’s story.
So I traveled back in time
Time itself slowed down for me
to savor every moment we had shared.
I absorbed the good and discarded the bad.
As I traveled through ‘our story’,
I found ‘me’ where I lost ‘me’,
the same place I first found you
only that this time I looked away from you
because I already knew how the story would end.
As I journeyed through space time continuum,
way back to when you were non-existent,
I rediscovered what it meant to be ‘me’ without you.
