Looking Back
From the day you spilled your coffee, I knew you were the one.
You smiled and said hello, and my heart you somehow won.
The shop was filled with people, but it felt like me and you.
My world in that moment stopped, and I was to shy speak or move.
 
My nerves begin to shift as the lights begin to dim.
It was like a scene from a movie, where we finally embrace at the end.
As you begin to walk by, I saw my time running out.
But instead of making a move, I sat quietly while you continued your route.
 
For days I went back, hoping to see you once again.
Those days turned into months, and now my hope had come to an end.
For years I looked back, thinking about the one who got away.
Wondering what kind of life, you had, and if you often thought of that day.
 
After years my life caught up to me and the judge had little remorse.
I was sentenced to the electric chair because they figured nothing more was worse.
Thinking about my fate and the women I’d killed during along my way.
I’d give all the others their life back, If I could have the only one who got away.
