almost never dies

20 May

like the rainbow that almost glowed
before the sun decided to set…
the winning chips you almost cashed
before you lost that all-in bet…

like the leading lady role
your call-back wasn’t enough to get
that perfect wedding dress
that was the last one in a size that didn’t fit…

so close, but no cigar for us my dear…
you are the one I almost loved sincere
but like the rainbow that never got to appear…
we were the perfect couple, lost to fear…

you were the one i almost loved in real life…
but now, i’ll love you in my dreams until i die…
it’s been a few years, and we still have yet to say goodbye…
when they ask me why not him, you’re the reason why…

that number one hit, the record company turned down
the perfect make up until the rain drenched me wet…
and all i can hope, and all i can pray for any more
is that our chance, isn’t really over yet…our sun hasn’t truly set

    There is so much in this that reaches out to me…
    There really are some people you never forget. And all those similes, those metaphors to what that person is, it broke a bit of me. So perfect.
