The Re Read Chapter

By: ShaunaLeigh

Page 1,

Everything’s going the way I planned
Except for one small little thing
I open my eyes every morning I can't smile
Because you were part of my plan
We used to say that I'd grow up
I'd laugh you'd nod and wish me good luck
Though nothing special was happening that day
That day
 
I wanna tell my story
But I lost you the very first chapter
Every page I turn
I wanna go back and re read it
Every line is a waste without your face
Every word barely heard ‘cause it isn't yours
I miss the way you smiled through your eyes
Yesterday I dreamt that you
Were living breathing real and true
I couldn’t help feeling stupid
For the first time I was crying
I felt for your hand that would wipe my tears
Just felt an empty space
But at least I know I can tell our story
 
You were there through good times and bad
And I know you would deny it ‘cause
Of the one time that you missed
When I fell outside and the door was locked
Because you had fell asleep
When you finally woke
You broke
Broke down and wept
 
I wanna tell my story
But I lost you the very first chapter
Every page I turn
I wanna go back and re read it
Every line is a waste without your face
Every word barely heard ‘cause it isn't yours
I miss the way you smiled through your eyes
And the other day I saw your face
Misshapen and all over the place
On that ripped up photograph
The one I promised I’d keep
 
When I look back
It’s like the memory doesn’t belong to me
I play it on a loop
Every night every moment
You never get used to it
Just learn to deal with it
It never goes it never gets better
They mean for their words to soothe
But they don’t know the least of it
 
As I continue my story.
