POETRY - I’M STILL HOLDING ON, TO WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN

i’m still holding on

to what could have been


to the forever

i fell in love with


i’m still hoping that you’ll call

that you’re healing


that you still miss the feeling

of me coming over


that the love still remains

that you’re finally sober


i’m writing our story

with different endings


a story where you meet me

when i’m not pretending


i write it because

i don’t want


this sadness

to stop


it’s the only thing left

of you that i’ve got


i’m not ready

to fully let go


of the greatest love

i’ve ever known
