I needed to write this to realize it.

Somehow the summer has passed without me realizing. It's been two months since you've been gone, and though the feelings you left will never be forgotten, I don't associate them with you anymore. To me you've become a close friend, which I guess was all you had asked of me in the beginning anyways. 

The summer has passed, and like the leaves that have begun to fall off of the trees, the pain you caused has blown away. A new school year has begun and the freshness displayed on the students faces reminds me that I am not obligated to worry about us anymore. I am free to find my own way. 

The summer has passed and I have grown to be the girl I had only dreamed I was capable of becoming. Though I may not be strong, I would never let the world know that. Walking through the hallways with my head held high, I feel like the miserable young person who came to this school from another has completely slipped away. The new me has replaced her. 

The summer has passed and the first Friday night with our friends was just what I needed. Nothing but a cup of coffee and oxygen between us, I am finally able to breathe my own air. As we all laugh and talk into the night, I look over at you and see you in a different light. Not one overpowered by love or confusion or lust- one that is purely you. 

The summer has passed, and whenever I look at him, I don't see any bit of you. I see him with his dark eyes and welcoming smile and wish it had been him all along. Because he is not you. And I am not the me you knew. 

The summer has passed, and as September bursts in the door demanding colour and cold, I watch it all begin again with him. Maybe this time it will be different.
