An Anniversary Ghost.

 

I don’t know what it is that makes me go through this every single year. But here I am again, same day, same time, the anniversary of when you turned and walked away.

I stand in the same spot by the fence and I can still see you turning, walking, your choice made. Had I ever thought you’d choose me? Yes, I really had believed that you loved me enough to turn your back on them, pick me. To take my hand and give our future a chance!

I can see the mansion in the distance. I guess you still live there with your family although you could well have moved on by now, married a man more suited to your ‘station’. I’ve not heard, but then my friends would not be yours, would they. We had no business meeting each other, let alone falling in love with each other.

I’ll stand here for a while and relive the agony of watching you turn your back and walk away from me. You didn’t look back once. Did you have tears in your eyes? I did.

Time to go, to move on again. I’ve not found anyone else; I’m not looking.
