The Cliche One That Got Away

I’d try to find you in the stupidest places,

I’d be watching a movie and find you,

I could find you in the street lights,

or reflecting off the lake,

or in the smoke that pours out of my cigarette,

but I was just looking for an excuse to think about you.

I’m still in love with you.

This poem is about: 



That is really good. It's short and simple, but I can really tell their is emotion within your writting. What you said is really true, isn't it? I hope that your writing mends whatever hurts you have.


Thank you. I wrote this probably about two years ago and since have come to terms with my feelings. But yes that was really true.
