Until It’s gone.


Something I wrote in high school.
(Circa 2006)

You don’t know what love is,
until it breaks your heart.
Your perfect little world,
soon after falls apart.

There’s nothing you can do,
and nothing you can say.
It’s just the way it happens,
and the way things will stay.

When it’s cold outside,
you want them there to keep you warm.
When you realize they’re not coming,
it suddenly starts to storm.

After all the mess,
after everything’s gone wrong,
you slowly start to realize,
you never knew what you had until it was gone.
