So I continue to listen to your songs as if they still belonged to us. I wanted to reach for you in the dark, to ask if you heard the same memories I do whenever it plays on the radio or comes up on your playlists.
Do you still remember when we first met by the city lights, with the night still early and we were young enough to stay up until dawn? Do you still hear our laughter in between pillow fights? Do you still feel the passion like when we first kissed, as if we never came in contact with lips that held so many words and stared into eyes with so many stories?
Do you hear the flashbacks of when we were high above the world, we were untouchable and no one could bring us down - not even reality? When you listen to the lyrics, do you think of those times we tried to leave one another, only to be drawn back like magnets who couldn’t help but be pulled back? When the song ends, do you wonder where we’d be if you tried harder and I didn’t finally decide to give up on you, on us?
I can see you now - humming to songs when they play, for you have a new favourite tune now, and I am no longer the one.
